I am starting on a new project. It is always so easy to start on a new project but sooo.. difficult to finish it off. Sigh. I have a number of work-in-progress that are still work in progress. Anyway, this new project, Charlotte’s Baskets, is taken from Bonnie Hunter’s Book – String Fling: Scrappy, Happy and Loving It. I have pieced a quilt pattern by Bonnie Hunter before, called My Blue Heaven. My Blue Heaven pattern can be obtained from Bonnie’s website, I did not sew it up like the normal quilt i.e. a quilt top, a batting followed by a backing fabric. Instead I did it up more like a blanket. I placed the right sides of the quilt top and the backing fabric together, sewed around the edge, leave an opening of about 6-10 inches, then turn the whole thing right side out. It was completed a couple of months back and it is now with my daughter in boarding school. Charlotte’s Baskets is going to my eldest daughter who will be going into the university in August this year. This time round, I hope to be able to quilt it instead of making it into a blanket. I will keep you updated as to how I am going to quilt it. But first, let me give you a peek at the first block that I have constructed last night.
