Sharon and Judy...Leprechaun quilters
Tuesday, March 13, 2012
A few years ago, I pieced these wonderful little baskets, then somehow they wound up in a box and were promptly forgotten. Linda Brannock has always been one of my favorite primitive designers...this cute little block is from her 1995 pattern, Star Gathering. I changed the border by adding the applique star vine and using 2 different plaids. It is also set together a bit differently, hers is a 5X8 setting, mine a 6X7. Question for you ladies...I think I am done with the applique and ready to quilt.....do you think it needs some berries? I plan to leave it asymmetrical...I tend to like borders like that, but wondering if it needs anything else???
The past two weeks, I have been counting the days until Quilt Retreat....Thursday, I leave for Nebraska City, Nebraska for some wonderful girl time with fellow quilters. And the good news is that I will have my show and tell done...All in a Row is quilted, and I am tacking down the binding!
We are having some incredible weather here in Missouri....82 degrees today...is it March or May???? Won't complain a bit! Love seeing the trees in bloom, and the flowers coming up.
If I don't forget to pack my camera, I hope to have some pictures from retreat to show you next time!
