Up date on April BOM "Spring Baskets"

"Spring Baskets" had a pretty good turn out, 23 blocks!

 You can find the instructions here.  It's a fun block that uses a half of a layer cake (5" x 10") for the basket and a little more than a half of a layer cake for the background.
And, yes, there is that basket with the funny handle.  It is our guilds policy to be forgiving to the new bees and boo-boos of all quilter's attempts. 
 Our mission like most guilds is primarily Educational and we encourage new bees to try new things, to learn and expand their skills by participating in the Block of the Month program.  First tries are often not perfect but it's a beginning!

Speaking of BOM's;  if you're looking for the May BOM instructions they will be ready in a few days.  Sorry for the delay, last week was very very busy.
Cheer, Claire W.


  1. What a fun looking basket pattern! Very cheerful blocks and the oops one will just make the quilt more interesting!

  2. Lovely colours, very spring-like.
