I found this project to be so much fun! No matter what was going on in my life, each week I couldn't wait for Thursday morning so I would have a little something to do. I did each one right away and put it on my design wall. I have to add here that basket blocks are not my favorite, either. I love how they look but do not like all those triangles coming together in ways that are not easy to press and deal with.
This morning, I flew out of bed and found the new posting with the finishing details and went into my quilt room (still in my pjs.) I started digging through fabric, trying to make decisions on what to use. (There was a kit available, but I just used my own fabric.) I figured out what I wanted to use and did the cutting and started sewing. Then I realized that the setting corners were not going to be big enough. I double-checked myself--it seemed correct, so I called the shop and inquired. Sure enough, there was a little error. She told me what size they should be and I rang off. At this point I was hungry, so I went downstairs to have breakfast. It wasn't even 7:30 in the morning!
After my cereal, I went back upstairs and finished! Yea! I love how it turned out. I included a border which I cut at 2.5 inches.
I enjoyed this project so much. I'm sure it was a lot of work for The Temecula Quilt Co., but I wish they would do more of them. A "block of the month" takes a year? or more? to do and finish, but this little "block of the week" only took a month (although I probably only spent 3 total hours or less). Instant gratification!
