With my daughter and grands here all week I didn't have time to work on my Baskets of Plenty block 5 of Cheri Payne's facebook quilt along. The photo below shows where my thoughts were headed before they came. Until...
Not to risk others thinking of cows when looking at this basket I changed colors. (I wasn't absolutely committed to the coral, I just thought the color worked with the basket.) This was the in-progress basket before our busy grands arrived.
I didn't take time to take a photo until tonight. Hmmm. I checked facebook and saw that Cheri had already posted her finished Block 5. Then I considered using just one of the blue flowers and adding several round/oval flowers in the salmon/red range.
Since this last photograph I've cut stems, leaves, and the roundish red/coral flowers. But I'm still playing with the layout and haven't positively decided on one or two blue flowers. Or maybe I'll go back to coral. Oh, the possibilities....
I've been late with every one of these blocks. It's become a pattern. I started earlier this month and was almost ready to stitch until the "cow's udder" comment and my decision to redirect the block's colors. Will I ever finish a block before the next block comes out? Gosh, I hope so!
