E-7


Difficulty of block: moderate easy
Number of pieces: 37
Method used: hand piecing

In the book, Brenda's draft of Bread Basket is comprised of 30 pieces.  To make it easier for stitching I increased the pieces to 37, but if you look at the original block it is made up of 41 pieces.  So, to end up with 5602 pieces like the original quilt, even if you are following the book, is just not going to happen, but it's still fun to watch the numbers grow.

Lovely block.
I think every quilter will end up with a different number of pieces ;o)

Lovely combination of fabrics. The two fabrics are totally complementary. Interesting observation about the number of pieces.

Love it! Do you have a piece count going? I don't remember seeing a running total!

One more beautiful block. I guess we will all end up with different number of pieces. My Bread Basket has 38 pieces. Should I count again? :-)

Lovely Block. I'll get to that one eventually!
