A Basketful of Taupe
A couple days ago I was dithering over what to do with the pile of 1-1/2" strips -- mostly yellow and green with a little purple thrown in -- that I had uncovered in the Big Reorganization Project (BRP).
They're not taupe, not even close, but when I saw this quilt in A Basketful of Taupe by Kylie Irvine, I could see the possibilities.
OK, so I might want to make some basket blocks .... but all those alternate blocks are various combinations of mostly 1-1/2" strips and an occasional 2-1/2" piece.
I think I can piece stripsets of 4 to make most of the blocks. The baskets? I'll break out the fusible and have some fun. I think I can even find an appropriate frame fabric in my stash. Time to hit the machine!
Just what I need -- another new project. Good thing there's a retreat next week. It has occurred to me that since some of the strips are green, it will qualify for RSC16!!
