I have a dozen of these batting boards to use for block piecing. I never remember to use them, but, they came in handy for preparing my basket blocks. I really enjoyed making the blocks once the hard decision was made about which baskets to put where. It was really easy to chain sew, without the pressure of choosing.
I made a few basket blocks first thing in the mornings, and every chance I had, in between other projects. I was surprised how quickly I had a pile of blocks.
I had enough swap baskets to make 57 blocks of four. Each basket is different and even made by a different quilter. I love them. I tend to be very sentimental about these things.
Here and here is more about my project. My one monthly goal for October was to uncover the project and prepare a plan. I did that, and then, couldn't stop working on them.
