Didn’t I just make a basket quilt?

Um, yes.

This is what happens when things get a little off-track. When momentum on other things gets interrupted.

After you see something lovely like this:

“Basket of Daisies” by Akemi Matsuyama

So, then you do this instead of what you’re supposed to be doing:

Magically, there is only one piece that required insetting as I put vague quadrants together.

The baskets are just fused down. I’ll “finish” the edges with some straight stitching primarily in black when it’s time to quilt. Which really ought to be soon because the fusible is starting to give way.

Guilty as charged.
