Started another quilt ......... Lilac Hill Picnic Baskets

Actually I started this a few weeks ago just laying out all of my pieces on my design wall when I had time before sewing them together. I just fell in love with Lilac Hill fabric line by Moda ! I am not really a purple kind of girl but I really like the Cranberry red, deep dark brown and warm purple colors in this fabric.
This pattern uses 2 turnovers for the baskets and you cut each turnover in 1/2 to make the basket blocks. These fabrics are just yummy !
Here is my progress so far. So far I like what I see . Hoping to start sewing the blocks together this weekend.

Hurrah Log Cabin Quilt finish..........

I know this quilt has nothing to do with fall or Christmas but it sure feels good to finish the binding on some of my quilts before I start another project.

Hurrah Log Cabin quilt made with Jo Morton's Hurrah fabric. I made this to have on my couch during the summer.

I have binding to finish on one more quilt and I will post a picture when I finish.
