I finally finished another block for my Basketweave Braid quilt. After quilting all day at my longarm machine, I find paper-piecing a bit too tough to tackle at night so I don't get the opportunity to work on them much. Add the fact there is a number of pieces to each block, this project is going to take a while to finish!
This brings the total paper-pieced blocks up to a whopping four. I have been thinking lately how I want to use these blocks. I know I don't have the attention span to make enough blocks to cover an entire quilt so various layouts have been running though my head.
I still haven't decided whether to use the block I made with a fun striped fabric. The colors are perfect but I am not convinced I like it with the pieced blocks.
Right now I have the blocks laid out on my design wall on point. I am sure they will get moved around quite a bit over the weekend as I contemplate their destiny. There are probably at least four more blocks to sew up, but because these blocks are so time consuming, I certainly don't want to be sewing up any that won't work in the quilt! So I need a plan before I go much further!
How about it, got any brilliant ideas?
BTW - The Basketweave Star block is a free pattern on Craftsy by The ADD Crafter. It is a great way to use up tiny scraps!
