BOM = Basket as a 16" Pillow
Quiltart has just been asking if quilt artists also make traditional quilts. It prompted me to finally finish a BOM from last year. I started as a quilt artist. However, I love all quilts. When my guild asked who wanted to do Block of the Month [BOM], I quickly raised my hand. This project allowed me to learn 12 new blocks. It was a challenge. Many ended up in the 'reuse' bag before I got a good one. Many needed fixing OR didn't fit in the final lap quilt.
This basket was too big to fit the quilt. I finally added some borders to make a 16" square pillow.
I also feel that traditional blocks can still have the 'hand of the maker'. My finished lap quilt is not the usual setting.
