Getting a Handle on Monday

>> Monday, January 25, 2010


I've started to work on my first block for the Basket mystery quilt. I don't know what colour I want the handle to be. . . the orange is my preference.

This light blue colour is the one suggested to be used by the pattern picture - repeating the middle of the basket.

My husband likes the green - but I don't have any more of it:)


That leaves the dark blue as my last option.

I guess I could add something completely different!

What do you think? Which would you pick?

(I'm just glad I took a picture and noticed the one square going the wrong way BEFORE I sewed it!!)

Check out the designs everyone else has up through the links at Judy's blog.

This one will get pieced over the week. Plus, I'm working on my Season of Grace stockings. And putting TOGETHER my Birthday Baskets quilt panels. More pics later in the week.

With Joy,
Sarah Vee

Sara, go for the Orange! It will balance the color of the block nicely using it at the top and bottom. My second choice would be the dark blue.

I agree with Tammy about the balancing, although since blue is my favorite, I'd want to pull that out.
I'm so glad you posted that you caught the turned HST block! I noticed it and was thinking -"Oh I hope she saw that before sewing". have a great week.

The orange is so you - go orange!

And since orange is my favorite color, I would make all the handles orange.

I think the handle should be dark so it shows up well, so either the blue or the orange.

Go to the orange! it is my preference for your basket, although I love blue color.

Ummm, definitely the orange! It really gives it POP! :)

I like the orange one myself.
