There's a basket BOM starting up at Bunny Hill designs. Each month's block has something that represents that month.

I decided to do this BOM as the Quilt Along Challenge of 2009 at CTTQ.
I'm planning on keeping my background the same, I will see what her "mystery lay out" is but kind of leaning towards shadowboxing them I'm making all the baskets different and As far as fabric planning.......I'm not planning on buying anything new except maybe some interesting basket fabrics and mabye one solid burgandy. Seems like since I started quilting a short 15 months ago all I have done is buy buy buy....time to sew sew sew!!
Quilton suggested not embellishing until after quilting. I think she's right. I'll be leaving it off on future months and most likely will remove the buttons before machine quilting.

I think that I'll use a similar looking fabric for all of my backgrounds - like all Cream-on-Creams or tans or super-pale pinks.

I have different "flavors" of fabrics - neons, dusties, marbles, etc. I'll probably just pick what I want for the first basket and then the following ones will be of the same 'flavor'. This probably won't be a NEON GREEN quilt - though that might look cool on black backgrounds.

This year I'm in scrappy mode (so far), so other than the same color in backgrounds and not mixing nuclear tangerine with dusty blue I don't think that there will be any further planning within the blocks themselves.

The designer suggested using all the same line of fabrics for the baskets (I think she had a Moda layer cake or two) and just scraps for the other stuff.

I like Calico's shadow box idea. Do any of you have thoughts on a cute way to frame each block so each one is a little wall hanging? I thought my aunt might like putting them on her apartment door.

Maybe you could make a small hanging 10-12" wide with a pointy bit at the bottom (like a bell pull) and put buttons on it - then when you make a block, just pillowcase-finish it (or bind it!) and put hanging loops at the top. That way she'd only have to store the little blocks and would be able to change them out whenever a new one arrives.

I made several little wall hangings for my apartment door, before we bought a house. I did all kinds of things. I did "off borders", which is where the width of each side of the border was different, like 2", 3", 4", and 5". I do not recommend this with a stripe. I did several borders all stacked and mitered. Each one a solid or texture. I used a novelty print that was seasonal for the border and the background was a solid or texture... so they would not compete with each other. I even made one with a simple print (like mini polka dots) and let the applique hang over it in spots. That one is easy. Oh, then I did one for Christmas that featured a tree in the center, framed with 3 borders. A red, a green then the red again. Then I did a nine patch for each corner done opposites. Row one and three were green red green and the middle was red green red. Hard to picture, I think.... I was trying to find a pic of all of these. So far no luck and I gave some away. I guess my favorite was the simple seasonal fabric that framed the center. It was usually a fabric that was NOT in the center at all but just went with the theme of the center. I just layered them with whatever was left over. It usually did not go with the front but since they were not for competition and only going to be viewed from the front, it did not really matter to me. Then bind as you normally would. I just thought of something else that would be nice, say for spring, scalloped edges. And for summer, prairie points. How about jumbo rick rack? I did one Christmas tree one with silver metallic binding. Very striking. There was a silver and gold star on the top and a silver present, among others, under the tree. Very cool. How about a medium size polka dot and use some of those crystals that are laying around to embellish some of them and one on the basket? HMMM I think I should get started on these baskets. LOL!
