Description

This is my start on "Polka Dot Baskets". I am using Liberty Lifestyle fabrics, natural linen and Priory Square. Update: I've assembled the top and now on to the hand quilting. What's almost impossible to see is that the basket handles are machine stitched in white. The baskets were machine stitched in navy. Finis! hand quilted with Finca No. 8 in Crimson and ecru. We finally had some sun- so a new finished shot is up

Love the basket top center. Oh, and the one to the right of it. And the linen, and everything you are doing!

Astitchaday

Love the Liberty with linen. Perfect!

HawkFan

Just love your fabrics. This is going to be so cute. I have to confess I wasn't real keen on this particular mini in the book but I love where yours is going

Readerowl

I need another 'love' button. The top is wonderful

JudyBR

This is so lovely! If I can get over my hangup about raw edge applique, I might try it.

True

Love your top! Amazing fabrics.

Mymble

Carolmarie Readerowl Ibtreerock Thanks ladies 

JudyBR Thanjs Judy- I hear you - it's never been my big favorite and I considered doing needle turned for this but as it's going on the wall - and won't go in the washer, it seemed ok. Also, using fabrics with a high thread count helps a lot!

Mymble

True thanks Mary - they are - they make me happy just working on them- which is especially helpful for the hand stitching

HawkFan

So cute. The hand quilting is a great touch

Mymble

HawkFan Thanks Audrey - black seemed harsh so - hard to make out in my late night pic but its a deep Crimson.

HawkFan

Of course I'm a big fan of Crinson wink

HawkFan

Crimson that is

True

Very sweet and love your hand quilting.

Mymble

Thank you Mary - this piece had such a lovely gentle vibe while working on it

Ibtreerock

Love it!

Conniharns

This is adorable. Love your hand stitching.

HawkFan

Such a cute finish!

Mymble

Thank you Ibtreerock !

Mymble

Thanks Conniharns - was fun to do 

Mymble

Thank you HawkFan - took forever  but I got there!

HawkFan

It does look like an involved project

Mymble

HawkFan well it's a funny thing- it's all simple seeing and no seams to match - it's the cutting and placement you have to watch- post it notes and the hand quilting is a lot for such a small piece but I find that relaxing so not a big deal there. I'd say this piece needs focus - can't just whip it out

HawkFan

Mymble I think that probably makes it seem more personal though too doesn't it? I like a little hand work sometimes

Sewhappy

This is so cute! I love your version. The Liberty works so well with your hand quilting

Mymble

HawkFan yes- exactly- and yes - a little is good! I respect those who do entire quilts - quite a feat!

Mymble

Sewhappy thank you- yes the Liberty and linen mix does really work well with the hand stitching - and even though this isn't the tana lawn- it's still a lovely smooth cotton that takes the stitches nicely.

True

Love the pictures amongst the flowers!! Perfect for this mini

Mymble

True Thanks :) -its always a challenge- I have so much trouble getting in close enough for detail but still far back enough to show the whole thing- but its nice that you can use the zoom here on TB- can't zoom in on IG so the zoom has to be done before I post.
