|Basket (without the handle)|
I redid the Basket block to remove the handle. In keeping in line with my rebellious spinster attitude, spinsters don't need handles. They do, however, need beers with lime in them which was drunk in celebration after finishing off two quilts on the long-arm downtown. The highlight of that was telling the saleslady there that I was using two colors on the Citrus Triangles Quilt, and I got a "Good on you, Girl" from her. I love Bayside Quilting - they call me "hon" and "dear" there. (You will see both the quilts that I finished as soon as the binding is put on them.)
And, finally, I was in a take no prisoners kind of mood last night so I finished off the Basket Weave block. It's insanely easy if you follow the suggestions of Grey Cat Quilts, however, I laid it out slightly differently because I keep looking at the original one and thinking how much like a Nazi symbol it looks like (a problem with repetitive squares in the quilting business).
