I have been making these small applique baskets for a while. I have some charm packs of French fabrics, so I drew a small basket that fits exactly on the 5inch squares (as I didn't want to waste any !) and the background squares are 6". There are 30 finished now, and this afternoon I prepped another 70. I have now used all the background fabric I had and am not sure yet how big I would like the quilt to be. All the baskets are different, and all shades from pastels to very dark. I have an idea for an applique center, and I also have some plans for the setting. They have been so much fun to do - it is hot here now and they are small and not heavy in my lap .
Hope everyone had some time to sew this weekend.
