So in between the sorting, packing and cleaning I decided to start this cute applique basket quilt. I have been collecting reds and whites forever and this seemed like the perfect block to begin using my stash. So far I have 31 baskets cut out and 111 background blocks. One block is appliqued, the others in the picture are basted and ready for needle-turn. This is a great take-along project. Plan to have all 300 little baskets cut out of 300 different red fabrics. I think I may have enough reds to be pretty close to the 300 and it always gives me a good excuse to go shopping for more fabric.
