Month #5 Miss Susana

Hello Blossom of Friendship Quilters,

It's a cold and rainy day here in California and the weatherman is forcasting rain for the entire week. So let's begin by brightening your day/week when you receive Miss Susana. This is one of my favorite blocks of the whole the basket! I've selected a designer fabric that you will need to cut out "just right" so you can have the floral design running right down the middle.

Pay attention when cutting out the basket handle so that it lines up with the design on the basket. It's not the end of the world if it doesn't line up....but I think it looks nicer.

All of my finished baskets are hanging up in the store. I just basted them together for the time being. I'm almost finished with month #9 which is Miss Zinnia. We will be ordering the fabric for the vine in the border soon. I've narrowed it down to two shades of green. I'll keep you posted.

As always,
