Basket BOM progress

Whenever I can catch a few spare minutes, I've been working on my guild's basket BOM.  I've been remiss about sharing pics of the blocks as they've been offered from month to month, but I finally have them all done and assembled. This picture gives you an idea of my progress so far.  I'm using an assortment of 30's prints, along with solid yellow and red.  I'm still going to add a border, and then after it's quilted I'll be embellishing with yo-yo flowers in all the baskets.  I'm aiming to have it done for our show on Labor Day weekend.

As the Comfort Quilts chairperson for the guild, I actually spend most of my quilty time these days working on small bright cuddle quilts to be donated -- I don't get a chance to focus on regular quilts as much any more as I used to.  I'm really enjoying being a member of the guild, though, and they do keep me busy!!  If only there were more hours in the day ...
