President's Block

2012

It's been our tradition to make each year's outgoing president a quilt block of their choice.

This time it's baskets for Carol!

The blocks will be 6½ inches square, unfinished.

She'd like you to sign your block, please!

We'll start collecting them at the June meeting.

Make the background fabric cream or off white.

Make the basket any colors you want. If you want to applique something in your basket, you may.

The basket can be fabrics of the same colors (like three purples) or completely different fabrics. Your choice. Looking at the one I colored below, the paler yellows and lights don't look as nice to me as the mediums and darks, so you might keep that in mind.

Remember, set scaling to 'none' so your page prints the correct size.
