I'm a basket case.14
There are so many to collect...
-- You're a Star (for a wonky star block)
-- Cabin Fever (a completed log cabin quilt)
-- Loosy Goose (for making a circle of geese)
-- Day in the Sun (for creating a Sunbonnet Sue)
You get the idea. I'm currently working on Basket Case, but I'm falling just shy of the achievement.
My patchwork basket based on a quilt in Patchwork 163 book. I was feeling good about it until I tried to add the handle. My flat block warped more than an Lionel Richie LP left in the desert.
I've never sewn basket handles or large curly stems before. I used 1/2" homemade bias for the stem. I sewed the inside edge first via machine and then stretched it outward which was sewn by hand. I'm wondering if I should have used a solid round piece of fabric instead of piece Do you know where I went wrong? Can you offer any tips on my way to a merit badge?
