scrap-basketsScrap Baskets EQ7 design

This is another scrappy project I have been printing shapes for. This project uses the Inklingo 3 inch Basket Collection. There are 360 basket blocks in my design. This is the third project I want to work on in 2015. (If you have been keeping track of my new starts. Hahaha) There is one more—the Ocean Waves quilt seen here. I have changed the color scheme on that one and am almost finished drawing the applique border. I’ll share details about it later.

Inklingo 3″ Basket Collection

The background shapes are printed on scraps approximately 8 x 12 or smaller. Printing Combo1 on an 8.25 x 11.75 piece of fabric gives me 6 sets of background shapes. On a smaller piece of fabric, I just print as many background sets as I can. I have about 250 background sets printed so far.


The basket shapes will be printed with my stash of Stonehenge and Marblehead fabrics. I have more than 60 different ones and I am always adding to them. If I print Combo6 on a 6 x 11.75 inch piece of fabric, I will have 6 sets of basket shapes to mix and match with my scrappy backgrounds. I am going to machine piece the blocks.


There is a basket combo set [Combo7] in the 3 inch Basket Collection that includes a back-basted heart applique. I am thinking of doing 20 or 40 blocks with the heart applique.


I brought a half dozen of these with me to work on. After setting off the smoke detector while pressing other blocks with the only iron I could find here, I decided not to work on anything that would need pressing during the sewing process. (Too scary!) That included my way of prepping the handle shape for appliqueing so I set the basket blocks aside until I get home. I’ll post a few of the finished blocks then.
