Baskets of Friendship Design Challenge

This year our Design Challenge theme was BASKETS OF FRIENDSHIP. At our first meeting, anyone that wanted to participate was given a list of guidelines for this year's challenge. We were asked to make a 9 1/2 inch square basket block. Any pattern, any color, anything you liked. We were supposed to bring back our basket block along with 2 sewing notions to trade at the next meeting.
At the next meeting, everyone received a basket with one of the already sewn basket blocks and a few fun sewing surprise notions. We were asked to use the block we received as inspiration for our challenge quilt. We were given a few more guidelines and a couple of months to complete our BASKETS OF FRIENDSHIP Challenge quilts. Here are the results at the May guild meeting.

She had something funny to say about hers - "What freakin' happened?" She was a little distraught about recieving a 9 1/2 inch block and then making 3 more of her own to match but having them turn out 8 inches and 10 inches square!


note from the author - I did see the finished project and it was AMAZING, but she gave it away!
