Today is the big day! All of those participating in the GIMQAL will be sharing their center blocks today on the link up with Lori over at Humble Quilts. Lori set the theme for the center block and the theme she chose was baskets. You could interpret this any way you wanted; it should just be inspired by Gwen Marston’s work. I reached WAY out of my comfort zone and decided to do hand applique. Here is my block.
This currently measures about 24 wide and 22 inches tall. I will trim this, but I am waiting until I find out what the next theme is before I do. Then I hope to have enough extra around the edges to trim to a convenient size.
And yes, I know my basket does not have handles. I got so focused on putting something IN my basket that I totally forgot to add a handle. Now it is not getting one.
But this didn’t look very Gwen-like. So I am not sure what I will do with this, if anything.
I can’t wait to go see what everyone else made (click here)!It isn’t too late to join us. Whip up a basket block and you will be right on target. We have a month to finish the next round. All the details can be found here.
Speaking of the next round, the theme will be…..CHILDHOOD! For a more complete explanation, hop on over to Cynthia’s blog, Wabi Sabi Quilts, and read about it.
Have a great day!
