I saved the little baskets to work on last and they went together so fast and were so fun. It was definitely the way to go for me, saving the best for last.
Sometimes sewing pieces together to finish a quilt can be tedious, but not this quilt. I had a great time piecing the parts together. Maybe because it wasn't row by row but the baskets are put together in units and then the units sewn together. I like this idea so much that I may use the unit concept for one of my own future patterns.
I needed to move onto other projects so I decided not to piece a piano key boarder but used my Michael Miller stripe to create a pieced boarder look. I was happy with the final results and now I can't wait to get it quilted. I'm not sure what direction to give the quilter but I think the flimsy needs dense quilting.
I really enjoyed this quilt and I highly recommend it to you if you are thinking about making it. The directions are a little odd so I'm glad I took a class to start it. Some of the handles were time consuming but it came together well. Amy is working on her own version. Amy's is going to be fabulous. I love her fabrics!
