Show and Tell Friday

I wanted to join in the fun at Amylouwho with her fun show and tell Friday. I just finished binding this last night. I had so much fun making these baskets with the New Riley Blake fabric, Sublime. Isn't this fabric rich. I love the dark chocolate with the cantaloupe, olive, bright pinks, and a touch of red. And who doesn't love ric rac. Especially when it is soft and fuzzy.
I still have a little bin of this wonderful fabric to create with. Oh my mind is just spinning with possibilities.
Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend. Enjoy making your Thanksgiving plans.

  2. I especially like the on point border treatment on this quilt. And baskets are high on my list of favorite quilt patterns. I have started working on a new basket quilt.
