Everyone knows I love Dear Jane, and Judy Niemeyer, and Kim McLean, or Toni Whitney quilts so whats another obsessively complex project to the list of quilts I want to make!

Oh gosh, that's stunning. I can only aspire to this level of project - maybe in another 5 years.

I guess your bucket list is a lot longer than mine........

We like what we like in life, it is just how it is. I love this basket quilt but I wouldn't have the patience to do it. Kudos to you!

You know I made two quilt tops this week both from precuts... My sister sends them to me because I won't buy them myself. My sister is not a quilter but she loves fabric and loves to send me packages. So I am using the precuts to make baby quilts for my nieces and nephews or rather her grandchildren. It's a win/win. But as much as I love these crazy big projects, I am very much appreciating the simplicity and ease precuts bring to making quilts in a hurry.

Great pattern. However I would want to change the size of the baskets to something I can see... Too many tiny pieces. I do love the pattern, though.

I am a Quilter at heart. I love to play with fabrics, patterns and colors. Recently I have discovered I enjoy doing applique. I love making pictures. Using a sewing machine is much easier than counted cross stitch or oil painting for me. I enjoy landscape quilting as well. I am working on my first applique project in the spring of 2014.

Ooooo, you lucky woman. What a great sister to support your hobby! That's pretty darn quick to whip up two tops in one week.
I'm too cheap to buy the precuts, but I sure appreciate the speediness they would add to the process of making a baby quilt.

Anyhoo, congratulations on having a sibling who supports your hobby! I'm lucky in the same way. Just saw my sister at Christmas. Her son died last July and she's still trying to get herself interested in any activity at this point. So I was delighted to have her show me 8 baby-sized quilt tops she had just whipped up using her "juveniles" fabric stash. At least she's got her sewing mojo back for a while anyway.

Sew on, ladies! No matter what size the fabric piece is........

Oh Warbler! I will live vicariously through you on this one! All those baskets would drive me to the brink. That's a LOT of work! But, I'm glad you enjoy this intricate style of quilting.
Heck, I am making my first lined jacket in decades. Lots of hand stitching involved. So maybe there is hope for me with detailed quiltig someday!

I have the book with this pattern in it the handle is a separate piece but that tiny diamond in the center is reverse appliqué, but I bet one could make the whole basket in on piece.

Really need to control my urge to adopt these big projects. I've too many of them. I'm not so sure I'll live long enough to finish them all. I do have to give credit to the maker as she made her 92x92 quit in 4 months. That's 309 blocks in roughly 120 days, which is 2-3 blocks a day. Hmmm... AND it's more blocks than the Dear Jane quilt.

What a cool sister! I agree that it IS nice to have some pre-cuts handy when you want to sew a simple or quick project- just makes it that much simpler or that much quicker!

A basic quilt of just squares happens to be one of my favorites. I love the they look! I have been eyeing some layer cakes I have in gorgeous gorgeous florals and thinking I want to see every bit I can of these squares and don't want to cut them. Probably just sew them together and not waste a bit of the beautiful fabric!

Then I will be in a nice refreshed mental state to tackle a very complex design like this:
Little Houses

Barb once again says it just like I thought it- We love what we love and there is no use fighting it! The quilts I am drawn to the most are usually quite complex also.

The little baskets are so cute!
