A Tisket a Tasket block 4

These blocks are just so much fun to make and I look forward each month to see what Anne has come up with. There's still lots of time to join in on this Block of the Month. Just click on the Tisket a Tasket picture on my sidebar and it will take you right to the pattern.
In this picture, you can sure tell where the natural light was coming from. Unfortunately I couldn't fix it in my photo program. Oh well, you get the gist of it! The actual color of the background fabric is on the right side.


Same thing happened here. Maybe I should be using a flash. Anyway, I got another block of Winter Wonderland finished in the car on our trip to and from California. I think I only have 3 more blocks. Wheee!

I also did one more block on "Stars around the Garden". It's the one in the lower right corner. I only have 3 more blocks of this one to finish and can then start on the center section. I'm trying really hard to only work on UFO's and not start anything new. Boy, that's no fun at all!

I have been very non-productive in March because I was trying to make progress on big projects...but I think we should both give ourselves permission to do a few other projects. My next one: an Easter wallhanging!

All your blocks are gorgeous...really need to start some wool projects, esp. since my local quilt shop I work at has just gotten a stack of wool felt in in yummy colors!

Stina said...

Ahhh... your woolblocks are just IT!!! Love them..
I have Winter Wonderland too..but not started... think I will save it ..pretty fed up with snow and snowmen right now... but I love the pattern..:o)

Betsy said...

All your blocks look great. I love your A Tisket a Tasket blocks. I'm doing mine in wool too and I'm so behind.LOL. It really is so hard not to start something new.

I'm glad to see what the 4th block is - I haven't downloaded it yet. In fact, I haven't even started the 3rd block. So I guess I'll work on both of those at the same time! Hee Hee! Yours are adorable!

Crispy said...

I guess I didn't realize that you are making the Tisket blocks from wool, I really love the look and texture of your blocks. I'm still just collecting the patterns LOL.

Kudos on trying to get your UFO's caught up. It's so darn hard to keep at it, but I know you can do it!!

I admire you getting on with your projects, all the blocks are wonderful. I love the Easter basket, very adorable.

Yvette said...

Your baskets are ridiculously cute!

You are making me want to do the Winter Wonderland too but I am on a UFO mission here too.

Hey! I just finished the binding on my Stars in the Garden. I will take a picture when the lighting is better.

I also stared a wool project. I got as far as the Glue basting. Now I am stuck on what kind of threads I need.

Pat said...

I love your 4th block. I love them all. I have the first block done in wool and embroidery and I really wanted to do it in fabric. I think that it is my ADD kicking in.

Hey Anne - remember me, LOL. Your blocks of Anne's are turning out adorable - loving the wool, but that's not a surprise is it and your Winter Wonnderland block is so cute, I'm hoping to start that project with my Niece after the move and your quilt blocks are yummy - love the fabrics. Congrats to you on finishing up UFO's - might not be fun all the time but you will be happy when you can cross them off the list. As usual I'm always inspired when I pop in to see what's new in your neck of the woods :).

Hugs- Karen

I am about to start the Winter Wonderland blocks and I am curious about the fabrics you choose for your whites and also that you did your embroidery on each block before putting the quilt together. Did you back your blocks with something special? I appreciate any help you may be able of offer. Love you blog and your wooly things.

Cindy said...

How fun! These blocks are coming so great! What an inspiration to others to do Anne's BOM.

Robin said...

Loving the wool version of Anne's BOM. I'm thinking of starting the Winter Wonderland and I was wondering what fabric you are using for yours? Looks like some quilting on it. Any help would be great! Thank You

Very lovely wool blocks! I like taking projects along on road trips, too. It makes the time go by faster. I like your redwork block, that's really cute.

I think I may have to go and purchase that American Patchwork Magazine - it looks like there are a lot of nice projects in there!

Have a good day!

I LOVE that Winter Wonderland pattern; it's been resting in my stack, just waiting...... I also like your bunny blocks; they're waiting, too. So many patterns, only one pair of hands. Sigh.

Kaaren said...

Wow, Anne. You've been a busy stitching lady!

I sure wish I could stitch in the car while my husband drives. I can't stitch, read, knit or anything because it makes me nauseous.

Your wool version of Anne's TAT BOM is fantastic. Love the Easter-y colors of wool you used. I think I'm going to start on mine tomorrow...time permitting.

Thanks for sharing all you eye candy with us.

Quilt Hollow said...

OMG! OMG! I'm so excited about the blocks!!! Love this one too! I'm envious of those who can do handwork in a moving vehicle. Stars in the Garden.....oh I loved that when it came out, refrained from spending and now it comes to haunt me again....errrrr! Everything is absolutely awesome!

Threeundertwo said...

The blocks are wonderful in wool! I can't wait to see how you finish the whole thing off.

Sherri said...

I LOVE your wool Tisket a Tasket blocks...and your Winter Wonderland stitchery is gorgeous too! Stars around the Garden is fabulous! Thanks for sharing so many gorgeous blocks today!

Karla said...

Your woolies are lovely. And I am working on the Winter Wonderland also but finish the top piece, now to get busy on the rest of the blocks.
These blocks have been so much fun. Thank you and Anne for sharing with us.

I too love your basket blocks. They look awesome! Hooray for finishing UFO's! I'm trying to do the same thing. I have enough to keep me busy for a LONG time. So wish me luck! ooxx`jod

MARCIE said...

You sure have a nice wool collection! Your blocks are so darling! Your cute little checks, etc. make them darling in wool!

Carrie P. said...

Your block is so cute and I really like the veriegated thread you used for the ribbon.

Dionne said...

I LOVE your basket blocks, all your wool blocks are fabulous!
Cheers,

Thimbleanna said...

Oooh, this is the first time I've seen the April block -- it's perfect for Easter!

kcenya1950 said...

It's hard to pick what I like best as all your shown work is wonderful. I think it is the little snowmen. Great job

Jen in NY said...

I love everything you do, truly! Your wool block is absolutely gorgeous! And your other projects are just as lovely! luv, Jen

Red Geranium Cottage said...

WOW you've been a busy gal over there.

Brooke said...

Anne I am so glad you stopped by my blog!!! You are a busy gal! Your work is beautiful. If I thought I would have time right now, I would join that b.o.m. It is sooo cute! I got my latest American Patchwork...but haven't had time for it either! Ugh. That is funny about the scorpion, at least you caught him before he snuggled in for the night in your bed!!! In your sewing room too....have mercy. Our "new" house has a little sewing cottage (joy!) and that was the first thing I thought...there CANNOT be scorpions in the sewing cottage!!! The exterminator will be my new best friend : )

Candace said...

Wow - at this rate, Anne, you're going to finish Winter Wonderland before me! I still have 6 more quilt blocks and the setting blocks - the embroidery is done, though!!
Cheers!

Annie said...

Not sure if my mail was sent so I am reposting. Boys are great. I love how you are using wool, where locally do you get the wool? I am doing BJ's wool BOM but the supply is limited. I always remember your house during the XMAS holiday...beautiful. Don't know the name of the person at So Many Quilts but she knows you!

Quilts And Pieces said...

Oh I just love your latest winter wonderland block!

Hanne said...

Lovely block - all of them :-)

Karen said...

Your bunny blocks are wonderful! I hope to have time to get started on mine some time soon.
