Wednesdays WIP - Photos

The weather here is chicagoland is cold, grey and it is raining. The dogs are curled up in bed, the house is quiet and I am in the sewing mood.

Today I am working on my mystery quilt from class last week and holiday fabric baskets. I have not made these baskets in years so I have to figure out how I made them. It is very easy, fast and fun to make.



Here is a link to the GCQE Greater Chicago Quilt Exposition photos that I took from last week. I did not get photos of all quilts. For each photo I tried to get the quilts information sheet.

Have A Great Day,


Debbi

I like those baskets - they are on my 'to do' list - I have a copy of Kaffe Fassett's Caravan of Quilts and the instructions are in there. I must get round to them - they are so nice to put gifts in for Christmas - if only I didn't have to go out to work!

I too am snuggled in sewing...by the fire...with all of my "boys" gathered round me snoozing. :) My husband is traveling, it would have to be today, to St. Louis, MO. I just hope he doesn't get stuck in Cinn. on his way. Debbi, would you consider posting a tutorial on making the fabric baskets? :)

Cute baskets ! I love Chanukah fabric and have a pretty good collection of it. Not easy to find here in North Texas though : )

Our weather here in North Texas is cold, cloudy and raining. Great weather for quilting!

Thanks for sharing your pictures.

Happy WIP Wednesday!

I remember those baskets from ago. . .they are cute and handy. I believe they are the right size for napkins.

I love your basket. I made some baskets the same shape, but not quilted. I did mine from an article in Maggie Grey's On-line magazine WOW. I will try and post one on my blog. I would like to try yours too. I keep my ever growing stock of lipsticks in mine. I'm never happy with the colours of the lipstick!

I am making another basket as I type this comment. I have been taking photos of each step. I hope to publish my instructions within a day or two.

Good, I was going to ask for a tutorial, too. Thanks for sharing pics from the Chicago Quilt Expo!

I love the baskets! I too will spend the day sewing. I am working on a shared quilt with my Dear Mom Suze. The timeline for completion is February 14 since it is a pink heart quilt.

The baskets are lovely. That ought to get you in the holiday mood!

Those baskets look like they would be handy to have on hand for those last minute gifts that you never plan for! Look forward to the tutorial.
thanks,
