Baskets of Life Blocks


Here are two more completed blocks from my Baskets of Life quilt. I’ve got two more prepped and ready to go. Getting the binding completed on the Cottage Garden has been top priority in the evenings.

Bruno is getting ‘fixed’ this morning at the Vet. He can’t have anything to eat until this evening--- so I’m making Ransom be a ‘team player’. I know it’s the right thing to do…but I hate taking him to the Vet and leaving him. Oh well, this, too, shall pass. And Ransom can have his breakfast .

Of course the furnace is acting up. They are only predicting temperatures in the upper fifties on Sunday so I guess I need to get it looked at today.

Just pausing to count my blessings:
My warm coffee this morning
Chelsey got a job at school
Sunshine peeking through the porch rails

I was just thinking yesterday, that it had been a while since you posted one of those outdoor photos of your projects. I am not familiar with the pattern set you are working on. If it involves basket blocks, it is a good one as I like just about any kind.
High in the 50's. Oh, my. Time to come visit me.

Really.....upper 50's? We can't get below 80's during the day. Usually in the 90's. It's supposed to only get to 81 tomorrow. A real cold snap! And at night it's so muggy, you have to stay in the a/c. I can't wait to open the windows and air out the house from a long summer of a/c.

Those blocks are so cool! I really love the fabrics used in them too.
Please don't say it's time to have the furnace checked!! Yikes!

Love your blocks too. Who is that pattern by. It looks like another JAM.

The baskets are lovely :o) And I am LOVING our cool weather! Hubby works in the heat, so when it is hot, he doesn't work as much, so for us, it is a blessing. Hope your furnace is okay.

Those are beautiful! And I love the border fabrics... I have a lot of fun (and spend way too much time) going through my stash to find the perfect finishing fabrics.

Have a great Thursdy! Kimberly

Your baskets look fabulous! I've had those stitched for a few weeks and just not done the outside piecing yet either. I'm loving this quilt as it arrives!

I saw in the paper today that you were in the 50's! Oh my can I come live there?
