Bonnie's Bonus Basket Block for Sow-A-Long

Happy Saturday. Mark and I are enjoying our short weekend trip up to Sunriver, where the weather is warm-ish but there is still snow on the ground. Here was the sunset last night from our backyard: Lovely, don't ya think?

I mentioned that I would post a bonus block. Well, guess what? Bonnie took care of that! She used her EQ magic and redid the basket block, which really does look kinda weird without a handle, and made up a paper-pieced basket block with handle.  Check it out at Bonnie's blog.

We are going to work out some kind of linky thing...I may defer to her on that one.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Love to you all,


  1. Beautiful scene, Randy!
    I just came from Bonnie's post. I actually put a basket handle on by redrafting the Temecula Blessings Basket of a similar style WITH a handle to make it the same size as our blocks. I'll post tonight. I'm off to a niece's wedding. Family time all day!

    1. Janet, I saw that same basket block and was also tempted to do another block using that pattern. I agree: no handle is kind of weird. Have a great family day!

    2. Just back from Bonnie's blog. Love her basket with a pieced handle. Thanks to both of you for continuing with the Sow-A-Long. I'm looking forward to your blocks, shared from the public domain. My kind of quilt :)

  2. Like to Thank You both for working together and sharing this with us. Happily sow-a-long.

  3. Hi Randy,
    When did you start? I am going to play 'catch-up' and Sow-a-long" with you and Bonnie and everyone else playing. Thanks for offering this to us all!
    Cheers, Cathy vJ in MA

  4. Wοаh! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this blog. It's simple, уеt effective.
    A lot οf times it's very hard to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and visual appeal. I must say that you've ԁоne a grеаt job wіth this.
    Aԁditionаlly, the blog loads еxtremеly quicκ for mе οn Chromе.

  5. It's in fact very complex in this busy life to listen news on Television, thus I simply use the web for that reason, and take the newest information.
