I had some issues with block ten. It did not come out as the pattern shows, the top of my baskets did not match up. I will have to work on this again sometime to master this block.
|Not as many pieces in this block, and no tiny pieces like in block nine.|
|Top is black, the bottom square is orange. Drew a line diagonally and then stitched a quarter inch from it on both sides.|
|Cut down on the middle.|
|Pressed opened to a new square with two colors.|
|Lining the squares to make the basket.|
|Okay, this is not how it should look. The top two orange triangles should meet. Everyone of my blocks came out this way, so I definitely need practice.|
|The completed block. I did an applique for the handle. Still irritated by the top of the basket.|
|So I just fixed it with a heart. All better.|
|I loved doing the wavy grid lines on this basket.|
|Well, that curved lines looks terrible, tore it out and re-did it, and added more stitching across the whole handle and the heart.|
|Love doing the stippling. Just realized I did not go around the block and just quilted up to the marked line.|
|Getting better at circles. The back is below.|
|And more circles. I like doing the curvy U lines, I also did them in the handle to make sure it was going to stay on.|
|An almost perfect circle. The circles in this block were all done free-hand. I drew grid lines first then filled them in with a circle.|
|And the back.|
My favorite block will be next, block 11. I love how it came out, corners and points all in alignment.
