Baskets and blocks

I've been making progress with my basket project. I got the borders put on yesterday, and I'm ready to layer and quilt. The border fabric was a serendipitous find from my stash: the diagonal plaid echoes the diagonal of the on-point blocks.

I like this top -- it looks soft and vintage to me, but it's not the usual pink and blue prints I'd typically expect to see in a 30s repro project.

Here's a quickie pic of my B-a-D blocks so far. Just about 150 done, not even half, and the stack is getting tall.
