Divided Basket Sewalong Finish!

Here is my finish for the #dividedbasketsewalong I participated in a few weeks ago.  This was the first finish of the Austin Modern Quilt Guild weekend in Wimberely TX.  It was a great time with some pretty neat ladies.  The quilt ranch was just beautiful!  Sorry about the big background around the basket that is a little distracting, but I took the picture at the retreat.  I almost wasn't able to finish it because I forgot to bring the gold binding for the pocket - gasp!  But one of the gals, Andrea came to my rescue because she bought her recently purchased Cotton+Steel with her (even though she wasn't planning on using it!) so she let me cut my strip - I was SO grateful!!

These are some of the rows I assembled on Sat, which is the next quilt for a Christmas gift. I actually put together all 9 rows in about 12 or so hours!  I loved having a large design wall at my disposal right behind me and I sure put it to use! I used a Kona cotton jelly roll called Merlot I got from The Fat Quarter Shop.  I am very excited about putting this quilt together and even more excited about gifting it! The design is 'ribbons'.

Thanks for stopping by!
