Amish Basket Block for Catharine


As time goes on, guild members move away the rest of us make her a Friendship Block in a pattern and colors of her choosing.

Catharine is moving and she chose an Amish Basket Block in purple with a white background.  I cut it out this afternoon and finished it tonight.  It is made with “Sunday Afternoon” fabric by Jane Spolar.


I bought a half yard of the fabric from Block Therapy in Gautier, MS a couple of months ago and made two fat quarters out of it for a drawing. I just couldn’t resist using one of the fat quarters for this block!  I’ll have to get another for the drawing.

The Amish Basket pattern is by Marcia Hohn, and is located on the on the Quilters Cache website.  The block is nice and large — 15″ finished.

I really enjoyed making it, Catharine!  Best wishes at school!
