Block 22 – Something Special. A truly unique basket block that is just looking for items to fill it! What fills your basket? Flowers, fruit, plants, pastries, books, and/or good wishes to give to a friend?
Baskets have been a staple through history as a household tool, so it is no wonder that quilters recreate this essential item in their quilts. Wow! An essential item – hmm?

I have a shelf in my sewing retreat room with baskets at the ready for whatever occasion. I’m feeling like taking one down and filling it with some fabric for a new hand sewing project that is portable. Maybe I’ll do some applique baskets, who knows?
Enjoy your basket making, and we’ll be back again tomorrow.
