A Tisket A Tasket Block 12

I decided to use some of my Christmas fabrics for this block.  I also had to look through my stripes to find some "candy cane" fabric as well.  I love my tiny bias tape maker for the 1/4 inch handles.  I find that starching the bias strip first helps to thread it through the opening to get it started.  This is one of the places that I use steam when pressing!
Once again, the appliques were prepared using water soluble stabilizer and a washable glue stick.  Machine appliqued with monofilament thread and machine embroidered. 


  1. That is really cute, and your candy cane stripes are just perfect!

  2. Such a cute block! These little baskets are so much fun!
