I had attended a regional quilt show this past week and stopped at the Deb Tucker booth displaying all her rulers and patterns and this mini caught my eye.
Nine little LeMoyne Baskets that finish at 3 inches! I already own the Rapid Fire LeMoyne Star ruler that the pattern calls for, so I purchased the pattern. I opened it up at home just to see what I was in for, and I saw that it called for strips that measure 1 1/4". Looking over at my cutting table, I also saw this little container of strips that were leftovers from my Tumbling Blocks.
Well Geez! How could I not make a few blocks just to try the pattern? (And, how about this cute little dish they were sitting in that I bought at TJ Maxx?)
So off I went, making a trial run of a few blocks, and after a while, there they were!
The bottom one is trimmed, the top one is not.
Now that I have that out of my system, I can go back to doing the quilting tasks that I should be doing and put this project back on the Future Projects list. But before I put it aside, I picked out all the fabrics for the rest of the LeMoyne star baskets and cut them to size.
Bye for now sweet little fabrics....I'll be back after the quilt show!
I'm linking up with Sandra and other like minded quilters who run off chasing squirrels and" Drop Everything and Make It" over at mmmquilts . So glad to know I'm not the only one. 😺
