So here's my basket and it now takes the title of least favourite block. Because my stems are too long  had to place some of the buds on the inside to avoid the seam allowance and one of my buds is facing the wrong way. Oh well it's done and I guess that's all that matters.

kris, there's nothing wrong with your block, you are just too close to it.   great colors.   if you think it is too sparse, add a few berries on the stems

gini:

sheila,  thanks for the comments,   this is the quilt we started as a group last spring.  it is baltimore's country cousin.   it has been a fun project.

Gini - Are the patterns out here somewhere that I could put this one on the back burner for a future project? These baskets are just gosh-darn cute! I'd love to see the rest of them.

Thanks Gini. I see a few places I could probably fill in a bit.

Sheila,

The patterns are from the book "Baltimore's Country Cousins". It is currently out of print and may be hard to find.

Sheila - I checked with E-Bay and they have one copy of Baltimore's Country Cousins  for sale (or auction?) for $14.95.  Grab it.

Kris - I found it!!! Used in vg condition. They said it's like new. Can you tell me if it had a cd in it or anything extra that I should be concerned about?

Thanks, Emily! I didn't see your post until after I'd already placed my order with Amazon but, that's okay. I don't do much on ebay, anyway and don't have a paypal account either. I know a lot of folks really love ebay but, I've never used it to buy or sell.

That's great Sheila. There's no CD with it.
