Little Red Baskets

I quilted up my little basket quilt. Boy, red, black and white is an unbeatable combination.
The inner border fabric with the different sized polka dots came into my life as a cotton mini skirt. Most of the rest of the fabrics came out of the scrap bag.
The oregano in my garden has bloomed, and the bumble bees love it. I've had lots of bees in my garden this year and I love to go out and listen to them buzz.
There is another holy card transfer project on the design wall. This one is the Sacred Heart of Mary.

Love the pattern and colors. You've inspired me to find these colors in my stash and get busy! Gosh it's good to see bees, isn't it? Around here folks have been very worried about them. Nice photos!

B, you are so right that black white and red are a winning combination. The pattern that you chose takes it to an even higher vibration.

That is a stunning red, black and white quilt. I love those b & w polka dots in different sizes, great find!
Are those old hankies around the Sacred Heart of Mary? How did you get that transparent overlay?
