What is in the tin? Oodles and oodles of baskets .... you will have to wait and see what they turn into.
When I look at the photo with the basket blocks, it reminds me of an article in one of the older magazines about a woman who was going through some rough times as she made blocks and added them to a lard can. Many years later, her relatives made quilts out of those blocks in the can.
Usually, I pin my blocks to my design wall to see how it is coming along and what colours are missing (my basket quilt will be scrappy) .... but for some unknown reason, I just keep making these blocks and adding them to this tin. Could it be that article is subconsciously making me do the same thing?
There are only about 25 more blocks to make and then I can start pinning them to my wall.
Have a great day!
