When my kids were little we made paper baskets and put flowers in them and left them on our neighbors door knob. They would ring the doorbell and run. It was supposed to be a secret who brought them. I'm pretty sure our elderly neighbors knew who they came from. What a fun tradition. I wonder if anyone does that anymore?
I thought I'd share a few basket quilts to get you in the mood for May!
Liberated baskets started in a class with Gwen Marston.
Basket of Blessings, designed by me, published by Primitive Quilts.
The two blocks above are from Beyond the Cherry Tree quilt.
I call this quilt Desert baskets. It was a free BOM by Wendy Whellum at Legends and Lace blog.
Sally Post block.
Wool Flowers by Jan Patek.
We made a quick trip to Portland this weekend to help my daughter with the last of moving. Yay! Hubby wanted to see the new digs too.
I'm hiking with my friend Mai today, since it is May Day!
