Tisket-A-Tasket Block 3

Yesterday was a blah day weather-wise. It rained for most of the day and the temperatures soared to a high of about 38 degrees. I was really having trouble motivating myself to do something constructive. After catching up on paperwork and blogging for a bit, I decided that it was time to start on the third block of the Tisket-A-Tasket BOM that was released on Thursday.

Not only are these designs soooooo cute, they work up quickly and leave you with a great sense of accomplishment. Before dinner, I did all the prep work like choose the fabric, trace and cut the design elements out of freezer paper and make the bias strip for the basket handle. I sat down at around 7:00 last evening and it took about three hours to complete.


The doo-dads won't be added til after it's assembled and quilted. I can't wait!
