There's a party going on at Ellison Lane Quilts.  A 5 day party at that! It starts Monday, May 2, and includes all kinds of fun stuff you may want to check out.  Giveaways... interviews...  and yes, I had a pile of fun answering some questions about myself!  Make sure to stop by there next week and look around a bit! Actually, you may not want to wait for next week.  Go check her out right now!  She just put up a great tutorial for a star block that I've got on my list, and while you're there check out her wonky log cabins quilt made from solids.  I love it!





And I couldn't wait to show you my basket quilt so far.  I'm planning on putting a scrappy piano key border around it, and then it will be a nice lap size.  But now that it's put together, I'm tempted to add another row of baskets.  I guess they're just so much fun to make that I haven't got them out of my system yet!
