A little sewing time...

Actually, I didn't sew but I did prepare a project.

While at the show this weekend I picked up a little
package of pre-cut, pre-fused shapes.
Basket shapes to be exact.
With tiny little diamond shapes included.

A.  The little baskets and tiny diamonds are on the right
and the fabric pieces I choose from stash to 
put them on - six 6" squares
B.  Layout choice #1
C.  Layout choice #2 - this was how the seller of the
little kit did her wall hanging
D.  Layout choice #3
E.  Layout choice #4 - that's the one I think I will do
F. (the largest photo) the baskets are all fused
and ready for me to applique

Purchasing the shapes pre-cut and ready to fuse made
this planning process a speedy one.
I will be putting black sashing strips but I
still need to audition corner stones and outer borders.

But first I have to applique the shapes...
By hand -  NO!
By machine - YES!
Process - not sure but I might just do raw edge
straight line stitching around each piece.

Those little diamond shapes are really tiny!

Enjoy the last day of summer...

Happy Sewing,
