Thursday night was patchwork night and there was a good turnout at our group because Patricia, our tutor, was showing us how to make a basket block.

I've decided that I will make three more of these and make a small to medium sized cushion.
Next Thursday, we will be making other variations on the basket block, one of which is called the Durham basket
