I have some civil war repro fabrics screaming to get out of their box. It's not like I don't have a couple of cw fabric UFOs already that I could work on (Blind Man's Fancy, Sunny Lanes) and another bookmarked to start (Sunflowers). I just don't feel like working on those quilts right now.
I just finished a basket quilt - a couple of old UFOs combined into one. I guess I needed to start another. (Someday I should do a post on all the basket quilts I've made.)
Martha (Q is for Quilter) posted about her latest vintage find - a little basket four patch. Oh, how cute! I had to make a few blocks before I forgot I wanted to make a similar quilt.
My baskets are different from the ones in Martha's vintage find.
I don't do applique handles (very often).
My four patches finish at 8 inches - the baskets at 4 inches. The baskets are a smaller version of one of the baskets in the May Baskets quilt I just finished.
