I have finished a few quilts of late and am thrilled to be able to cross them off my UFO list.
First Quilt is of Amish style Baskets, these were made for me by the ladies of a house group I had many many years ago. I dread to actually think when this was – my friend Di can probably remember, not I!!!! Anyway it is now FINISHED…yay…. Annette took a liking to this quilt so she has it now. I quilted each basket with a different style of Vermicelli….IE; V with hearts, or V with stars etc etc. This was to get Vermicelli OUT of my head and gone. I have used it far too much and have learned so many new quilting patterns I am going to try really hard NOT to ‘V’ ever again, unless when I do a quilt for someone they particularly ask for it…like Marian…hee hee

My Baby Jane – front view — I kept roughly to the same idea as the original by doing the colours in a ‘log cabin’ effect along with the block pattern too...ha ha laughing because I did this with my group and each year they all asked had I done mine yet??? Well Yep I can say I have now….
My Baby Jane close up of border treatment which I loved doing, I chopped all of the DJ Reproduction fabrics I had into 1 1/2″strips for this border….
My Baby Jane showing centre and my quilting treatment for each block, of which each had a different pattern…
…hope you can see the designs used…

My Baby Jane – close up green slightly showing through
My Baby Jane – more green on show of the backing fabric which had light green flowers all over it…
My Baby Jane – stippling close up it took ages to do each block which measures 6″ square – what fun!!
This Quilt was a design by GETA, I trial tested it for her before she put it up for sale, it went together an absolute dream, I called it CAMERA LENS…can you see why?? I love this quilt it is a keeper…MINE all MINE…thank you to Geta who designed it and allowed me to post it on here….
