I hope all of you are caught up after
our short break because it's time to plow ahead with the farmin!:)
6" Egg Basket Block
I designed a basket block for this barn...
it's really no surprise that I love basket blocks.
I always have to make a basket quilt with
pretty much every one of my collections!
every working farm uses them:)
Wouldn't you love to gather eggs in this cute little basket?
Okay...onto the cutting!
Press towards the triangles.
Sew Easy Corner Triangles onto the 3 trim pieces like this...
For the one in the center...
sew... trim and press
before you can add another ECT onto the other side...
Egg basket complete.
It should measure 6 1/2" at this point.
Now build a barn around your block!
I chose to build a gray barn around my egg basket...
for that vintagey weathered look:)
It's just the right shade to compliment the
rosy pink and butter yellow egg basket:)
Wasn't that easy???
Did you know that I have pink and yellow sheep on my farm?
Today they are hanging out in the loft...
I wonder how they got all the way up there?...
and how will they get down?...haha
Silo Barn #4 complete...
and onto the design wall to join it's neighbors:)
Next Wednesday will be the original red barn for the first quilt
and a block I named
along with a fun and easy method for making
quarter square triangles!
I hope you like my
Egg Basket block...
let me know what you think!
Have a quilty kind of day my friends...
it's good to be back sewing with you!
This egg basket block
is now in my book called
Farm Girl Vintage.
I left the pictures
in this tutorial up for those
who have the book now
and are doing the sew along!
