A Tisket A Tasket

I completed the Tisket a Tasket top , found sashings and borders I liked so got those cut and sewn yesterday and sewed the last two borders on this morning and I love it .I have no idea what I will do with this but it sure feels good to have finished it , well not quite as it will need to be quilted and bound but at least the top is complete . This pattern was a Bunny Hill BOM for 2009 and is no longer available as a free pattern but there is another wonderful BOM for this year called Henrietta Whiskers so if you are interested just click on the icon on the left sidebar and it will take you there , it is really cute and a new block has just been posted so you still have time to catch up . I have decided that this year I will do the BOM by machine rather than needleturn applique as I will likely finish it on time ;-) Now it is back to the mystery quilt , I am actually making great progress on that now so will hopefully show a completed top real soon ,crossing fingers and toes :-) Have a great day and thanks for stopping by . hugs Sheila

  3. Sheila, it turned out so beautiful. I still have mine to complete. I was glad to have downloaded the free patterns because I was at a quilt shop on Saturday and saw the purchased one there. The cost was $30.00! Seemed kind of steep after getting it for free!

    I'm gonna check out the Henrietta Whiskers. I don't need another project right now at all, but it's worth a look:)

  5. Lovely! I wasn't quilting yet when it was available free, and I don't think I'd pay $30 for it. But that's okay - because I have a million and six other projects in process. Doesn't it feel good to have it finished?
