I found lots of lovely prints and Rosie gave me some too. What I did find and it did surprise me was, I bought the green fabric for the border and it was the same shade exactly which was in the quilt.
After our trip to America I came home all enthused about starting this quilt. That is what I did start. What I should have one is home doing all enthused about finishing this quilt. So now years later I am back to ‘trying to finished’ hopefully by the end of the year most of the top should be done.
I will take these little hexagons everywhere I have to wait for someone and do it. That way the quilt top will progress more quickly than just doing it at home.
One mistake I did make was not making the hexagon bigger and that way I wouldn’t have to make as many baskets or make the borders larger. Oh Well Too Late
This is the first basket that is nearly finished I has 10 more baskets and handles made. I
Next I supposse I will have to do the background which I am not looking forward to.
