Baskets and Wreaths

Here is a sneak peek of the project I have been obsessing about lately!
Each block will be 8" square. I think I will sash it with a batik fabric, but I'm not sure yet. I have changed the flowers so many times to get them to coordinate,
I could probably make another project just out of the rejects!
These are all wools, and once I get them all set I will begin to 
sew them down with Valdani's #12 perle cotton. The background is a lovely faded-out looking black flannel that I bought from Connecting Threads (love the lower prices there, perfect for staple fabrics like that). Click to enlarge the photo and you can get a better idea of the background fabric. This photo is a little dark, I apologize. I was playing around with the tungsten setting on my camera!

Sew what have you been doing?

You have such a lovely piece of work here...if I had any amount of confidence in my ability to start, finish and pull off something like this, I certainly would...I have stared for hours at wool applique quilts and I just love them...

That is quite appealing to me. I love the patterns.
