Brenda's Bounty started in January - 7 1/2 " finished blocks
I have to admit my method is a bit different from the template piecing method in the book - just adapted to my peculiar skills (ie the difficulty I always seem to have with accurate piecing!) and the methods I enjoy.
A little bit of fussy cutting if the fabric inspired
and here are the pieces prepared to hand stitch the block above
My method involved making my own EPP papers - using thin card and shapes from the book templates.
For the small triangles I stitch basted the fabric over the card and later popped out the card to reuse for the next block.
For the the handle rectangles, I first needle turn appliqued the handle onto a background rectangle (using back basting preparation method). Then I used a glue stick and iron to glue baste the rectangle over card ready to EPP this piece.
The two large triangles were also glue basted over card. I usually prefer to avoid glue, but with large shapes the fabric stays a lot more stable than when stitch basted - because it is held all around the shape edges and not just in the corners. Hope that makes some sense?
So ...all these pieces become...another basket block
Once the block was all stitched together by the EPP method, I removed the papers and unpicked the basting just around the edge pieces, pressed flat and trimmed to 8" square.
The design wall was important to check for balance in value and colour
The baskets are done and now I'm moving on the edge blocks - just simple EPP of little triangles.
Not much looking forward to putting it all together with the sashing pieces ...Y seams ahead! I'll put the sewing machine to work for that bit...and try to keep the brain in gear!
The garden is starting to show signs of Spring cheer so I brought some inside.
Oh, my, what a lovely (and unique) pattern! How large will this quilt be?ReplyDelete
A GREAT SPELL CASTER (DR. EMU) THAT HELP ME BRING BACK MY EX GIRLFRIEND.Delete
Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.

Wow! I love how you choose fabrics. I'm trying to achieve an antique look (with a quilt!) at the moment & your blog is great inspiration for that. Thank you for detailing your method too - I hope putting it together goes smoothly.ReplyDelete
I really like this pattern in Linda's book too I hadn't thought to do it with EPP, I hadn't looked at the book for awhile so do not remember did she do this one with EPP or is that your idea? I know some that are addicted to EPP do all quilts this wayReplyDelete
Beautiful fabric choices and fussy cutting. Thank you for sharing your process.ReplyDelete
Love it! I like the basket with the squirrel. You have used some marvelous fabrics in making the basket blocks.ReplyDelete
First time I see this basket. It's so lovely. I can't believe you are piecing the entire basket by hand and have all the blocks already made. Amazing! You are amazing! This quilt is another Masterpiece in the making. Enjoy the Spring cheers! ;^)ReplyDelete
What a lovely basket pattern and your fabric choices are perfect--as always! Loved reading about your EPP method for making the blocks. Daffodils make me smile. Yours are beautiful :)ReplyDelete
What a beautiful quilt you are making!ReplyDelete
I always enjoy hearing your take on a pattern. Your blocks are beautiful.ReplyDelete
Very pretty daffodils and your blocks are lovely !ReplyDelete
I made this quilt before Brenda sold it Linda. This quilt can be put together without Y seams. I used partial seaming and it went together beautifully. I did not like the way Quiltmania wrote the instructions-too hard. Yours will be gorgeous. I made mine like the original.ReplyDelete
It is beautiful again! I love your work a lot!ReplyDelete
Your quilt will be beautiful. Glad you found an easier way for younto assemble the blocks. Quiltmania's instructions are always so hard. I will use the instructions from the original pattern by Sarah Francis.ReplyDelete
Another stunning quilt! I like your method. I've been trying to resist adding this book to my collection, but I can see it is futile--lol!ReplyDelete
Your quilt is gorgeous! I love the fussy cutting.ReplyDelete
My heavens--what a gorgeous quilt--and I LOVE your EPP-ing (is that a word? Well, it should be lol) instead of fidgeting with matching those points--my bugaboo, too...ReplyDelete
Your fabric choices are simply perfect...beautiful work hugs, Julierose
Wow. The name of your blog is so fitting, Hilda - Every Stitch. It speaks to the minute details so painstakingly (and lovingly) executed in the making of your magnificent quilts. This will be another masterpiece, the whole far exceeding the sum of its parts.ReplyDelete
Reading your blog, observing and studying your process, has a calming effect on me, and inspires me to slow down, take a deep breath, remember what it is I'm trying to acheive, and to take the time to make it right. I thank you so much for sharing.
It's a rather elegant looking basket. I love the colors and fabrics you have chosen.ReplyDelete
Again, you inspire me! Such a lovely quilt block and such soft, beautiful colors. I particularly like it because it is not a cross, but more organic. Beautiful!ReplyDelete
My Goodness!! Where to begin? Your fabrics are so lovely and really shown up wekll with your fussy cutting. Just love the alternate plan/solution of the EPP - genius! You could avoid the Y seams (who needs that challenge!!) when you piece your blocks by working in diagonal rows. Looking forward to seeing your bautiful finished top!ReplyDelete
What a beautiful basket block. I've never seen it before and admire the handles and the setting. So different. Thanks for sharing your piecing details.ReplyDelete
I love your method. I was always thinking that small triangles will make it too difficult for me to be accurate, but with epp - easy, why not?! Thank you. Your quilt is as always inspiring.ReplyDelete
Your quilting is amazing and the quilt is a masterpiece. you can be so proud after such a delicate work.Congratulations alreadyReplyDelete
I love these baskets! This is an exciting WIP :0) Its so interesting to read your process remarks. Its going to be a beauty!ReplyDelete
Beautiful blocks! Those fussy cuts are such a sweet surprise. I really enjoy observing your process when you piece your quilts.ReplyDelete
Another breathtaking beauty Hilda! I adore these blocks. And, I think the EPP gives the block a softer look. Just beautiful!ReplyDelete
I adore these baskets! Your color choices are so gentle and soft. Always an inspiration to come look at your projects!ReplyDelete
I love this project! It is one of my fav quilts in Linda's book, before I saw this in her book I had never seen baskets like these before. Such an interesting technique you use, it looks very precise. Beautiful fabric choices!ReplyDelete
Lovely blocks! Your method has obviously worked well for you. Looking forward to seeing the lattice!ReplyDelete
So beautiful! Your ideas and quilts are an inspiration for me!ReplyDelete
It is lovely! I love how you fussy cut the fabrics and used such a variety. I would never even think of using EPP for piecing the HSTs!ReplyDelete
Loving your fabric choices for this quilt. It's going to be another stunner !ReplyDelete
I think this is one of the most significant information for me.ReplyDelete
And i’m glad reading your article.
But should remark on some general things, the web site style is perfect,
the articles is really great : D. Good job…
I love these baskets! This is an exciting WIP :0) Its so interesting to read your process remarks. Its going to be a beauty!ReplyDelete
