Yes! I like all that purple! But that is one of my favorite colors. :0) And I like how you put a different fabric at the top of the basket handle. Nice job!
The handle was a bit of a struggle so I decided to add the Grape leaves to hide some of the trouble spots thats the beauty of applique it can hide things!
Pam NZ asked:
I LOVE all the purple! Are the grapes in the basket made with hexies? Very cute idea! I really adore your economy block too... love the movement in it! Flowers in the centre is a really sweet touch too! Lots of interesting little bits, well done! Can't wait to see it finished... no pressure LOL!
yes the grapes are hexigons sewn together and machine appliqued
how do you already know before September what the flowers look like and where they should be placed? This BOM doesn't allow people to go ahead of anyone else so how do you already have pictures of your finished block for September?
I didn't plan to do flowers I wanted to stick with the purple and fremch theme so I made grapes out of small hexigons and machine appliqued them down. I look at these Quilt a longs as guides and you are the designer so live alittle and be expressive isn't that part od having fun!
