Unfortunately, things like this come along. I saw this in (one of my) new books, and I knew I had the perfect fabric for it. So what's a girl to do? Clear a space on the sewing table and get busy!! This is in Edyta Sitar's Patches of Blue.
And then there was this! I saw a picture on FB, and immediately had to have one. The one I was was in blue, and if I ever do it again, it will be blue. But my little neutral fabric had specks of red, so I went with red. The baskets are 2 inches!!!
The next two are charity quilts from the scrap bin. I try do make a small quilt nearly every month in the RSC colors. I give you Red and Teal.
Speaking of RSC, here are my orange blocks for August. I'm sticking with lighter values this year.
There are two other quilts in process of quilting. I didn't like the way one border was coming along, so ripped it out, and have to start over. And I got too tired to finished another small quilt last night.
In other news, the wildflowers are still blooming, and there are a lot of butterflies to be found!
What's happening in your sewing room? Sunny

Great little quilts using the RSC colours... I've fallen quite behind with RSC & have only just sewn the May colour & ready to start with the June colours, oops!
Those little baskets are just so tiny & super cute, well done it looks wonderful.
