Changed My Mind




Sorting through my fabrics the other day, I came across a pretty dotted green piece that I had forgotten I had. I remember being so in love with it when I first bought it and now it was love all over again. I looked around for a place to use it and decided it would be perfect as a background for my monthly Basket Blocks. Two were already finished (here and here) so it meant doing them all over again. But I did it and I like it. The Internet doesn’t do it justice, of course. The fabric is a beautiful soft celery green and adds just a touch of color to the background.

Now I have the first three months all completed….again.

I do like it against this fabric better. Just a little more color is terrific.

Love this fabric. I know it was extra work, but it was worth it.

Well your "do overs" are fantastic and I love anything spotted! What will you do with your other blocks? Mini quilts, little pillows?

Great choice for a background fabric Annette. They look so soft. That muted celery green makes my eyes smile as well.

I love your blocks. The applique is so perfect. I am working on these also and this is my first time to applique so I am interested in what method you are using. I am finding it kind of difficult to do needle turn, but I keep trying.
