What are you most proud of? The whole thing! This is my favorite block so far!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I don't like to hand stitch because I don't have the patience to get the stitches even so machine stitching was the way to go for me. If you're impatient like I am, machine appliqu is the way to go.

Your block looks wonderful! You did a great job! did you use stabilizer under your block when your where appliqueing? That makes a really big difference.

No, I didn't use stabilizer. That explains a lot. I will next time. Thank you for the tip.

Your block looks so pretty. You did a wonderful job with the stripes in the basket. They line up perfectly.
