A little mini

I'm participating in a holiday swap with my Wisconsin friends that is to be a 12" block mounted and framed. I had a tough time deciding on what to make since they are all such great quilters!! The bar is high!
I chose a Kim Deihl pattern from her new book. Now I'm struggling trying to find the perfect frame! 12x12 is not an easy size to find.
Hopefully this will pass muster!

The baskets are each 3"! It was really fun to make. I sewed down the handles while watching a little TV, which I don't often get to do.

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! We had all our kids, my mom and our three darlings so it was quite a crowd. The darlings stayed with us a couple extra days so that was special!

We are off tomorrow for our annual Paris trip and I'm quite excited. I'm busy packing a little package for my dear friend Will who I am very excited to see again.

Here are a few  more favorites from the quilt show that I didn't post before:
