something new

I've been working away on this quilt for awhile now - I think there are enough blocks made now to get the idea of the quilt I am making.

I had been wanting to make a basket quilt for long time and I had been collecting pink and brown fabric for it. When I saw the basket quilt on the front of the May/June 09 Quiltmaker magazine I knew I wanted to set my baskets with 25 patches too. I modified my basket block from a 9 inch block to a 10 inch block to simplify the math. I've lots of blocks to make yet - it will be a single bed size quilt when its done. I'm making it for my youngest little daughter.
A friend of mine sent me a link to this blog with an article about a "real" Mrs Sew & Sew. (scroll down to her May 19 post) I never heard of her before. She had some informative pamphlets! :0) I got the idea for my blog name from the name I have always used when I have tea parties with my daughters.

A second look through my pictures of the old quilts convinced me that I have shown my best pictures already.
Happy Quilting!!
