Baskets of Color

I'm still playing with my batik prints. Thought I'd try a ten inch pieced Basket or Cake Stand block:

I love the movement of the yellow through the pink and orange of the basket above. But there's nothing wrong with the pink below either!

Thought I'd try for a lighter background next:

Cutting patches for these blocks resulted in duplicates so I made another block...

I find these blocks just breathtaking, if I do say so myself! I'm also continuing to make six inch blocks for my personal Parts Department out of the leftover bits of batiks.

I want to make some flying geese units too, but I'd like to keep the backgrounds at least the same value if not the same color/print. Haven't yet figured out what that will be. I was thinking I would try out a medallion set with these blocks. That could change of course. The best thing about quilt making is all the choices or possibilities it offers. :- )


  1. I love your baskets. They are so pretty made in those bright colors!

  2. Oooo,your batiks are luscious! Looks like you're having lots of colorful fun. Wow, they just glow. This will be gorgeous.

  3. Sue, I love those batik baskets--they really pop!! Julierose

  4. Yes, they're breathtaking. Really gorgeous blocks, they show off the batiks nicely.
