Presidents Block.....

No, not THIS president. This Monday is the installation of officers at my quilt guild. It is a tradition to give the outgoing president enough blocks to make a quilt. She doesn't get a finished quilt, just the blocks.

We were given these instructions.

and a baggie of two fabrics. After much reading, cutting, sweating, pressing and stitching I ended up with this....


Don't look too closely or you will notice that when she sews this block to another she is going to lose a bit of the basket base. Shoot....

Happy Sewing,
Nancy

These are cute baskets. She will have a beautiful quilt. It almost makes being president worth it--not!
I just posted about our president's blocks too.
