I’m going back a couple of years for my next block of the month to the very adorable A Tisket A Tasket pattern that Bunny Hill did in 2009. While you can purchase the pattern now, at the time the patterns were posted for free on the blog each month and quilters could follow along. I was too busy to make it then, but did print off the patterns each month and put them all together in a binder. I even ordered the ribbon and button finishing kit and tucked it away so I’d have everything when the time came.
The following year I thought I had the time and started making the blocks. I got four made and then stopped. I don’t even remember why.
I had bought two different pale green fabrics to use for the background. Everything else is just whatever strikes my fancy from the fabric scrap drawer.
This past week I cut out all the pieces for the May block and will get sewing on that this week. I love appliqué so it should be a fun one to work on again.
There are lots of great projects being worked on over at Patchwork Times, go see!
Sinta is keeping us all on track with our block of the month projects too, check out what ones others are working on.
