Here's a set of blocks I pieced back in 2008. Ha, they've cured long enough, so I'm setting them together this week. Not sure what was going on back then: the size varies by nearly an inch from block to block. I'm not usually that inaccurate. But since they're 1930s repros, I'm staying in the spirit and just "making do" with some trimming and a coping strip here and there -- I'm telling myself it'll add to the vintage flavor :)

My UFO roster seems to be running about two years behind ...

A wonderful photo from our local KBHR news site. See the arrow I added pointing to where we live at the southeast end of the lake?

I love your basket blocks..I'm sure once you put them together with a little fudge factor and quilting they will look great.

The basket blocks are so soft and luscious - very pretty, wispy, gentle. 8-)) You have been sewing a long time - how on earth did they end up with such different sizes? You'll have to get MORE creative - and I'll be your solution will be clever and then we'll ALL want to try it!
