I knew when ever that first basket was posted by Temecula Quilt Co. I had to take part in their quilt along , what to use was my first question , aha more of the Louisa scraps , can I make it with those I wondered , well I was determined to give it a try , I mean what did I have to loose right ;-) So I sewed along each week of March and had all my baskets ready for the last step of sewing them all together . The layout instructions were posted and I immediately started cutting my sashings and set in triangles as well as the corner triangles , when I went to sew them together I knew something was wrong and sure enough there was another post telling us not to cut yet , the triangles were not correct , oh yikes , panic set in as I was not so sure I had enough to redo . I knew for sure I did not have a10" piece of fabric so took a 10" piece of paper , cut that apart into four sections and used that as my template , luckily for me I had just enough width of the scraps left so with turning the triangle one way then the other I was able to cut the necessary triangles for the set in triangles and was happy to discover the first set of set in triangles I had cut fit as the outside corner triangles so I commenced the piecing process and I just love this little quilt that I consider free as my Louisa quilt was a kit and I have now made the full size quilt as well as two minis and I do think there is another mini in that container , I think it must be breeding ;-) So here is my version of the Blessings mini Quilt.
Now for the first time I have decided to take part in Macro Monday , Wendy suggested I do so after seeing my cactus photos last week .I do love taking photos and was playing around with my camera and here are a few macro shots I took this morning . This is another cactus that is now blooming and as you can see the color is a much stronger pink ,beautiful .
