Yes, Anne. I pieced the basket, cut the handle on the bias, sewed the strip along its long side, just to hava a steady width on the handle, and appliqued it to the background. Then I ripped the seam at the top of the basket a little to take both ends of the handle to the back of the block, and sewed them in place again, closing the part I had ripped. Does this makes sense?
Wow Carmen, these are great blocks!! I love the soft pink and blue of A-4 and J-9. Did you paper piece them? And I like your K-2 better than Jane's, even though I don't play chess. Your doing a wonderful job!!
