Basket 2 and Spring Flowers

Hello, all of you quilters! There’s a new block in the Flower Basket Block of the Month! I’ve named it so creatively – Basket 2.

Tip: When done stitching each basket block, leave the paper foundation on the back. It will stabilize the block until it is sewn together with other blocks.  It will also automatically act as the stabilizer when doing the machine appliqued flowers in future months.

Today I received an email from Beryl in Australia inquiring about a little quilt on one of my Gallery pages, Spring Flowers. I must have made that wall hanging 18-20 years ago! The photo is tiny and low resolution because back in 1998, computers had about as much power as a calculator does now. Anyway, I thought it was a good time to bring back an up-dated version of that design as a new freebie! Besides, it was 20 degrees below 0  this morning, making spring flowers sound so good! I hope you enjoy this paper-pieced project, Spring Flowers Wall Hanging.
