Baskets and Boxes on my Design Wall

The basket handles are handled ... and this weekend project might have been finished except I decided to rearrange the triangle squares. Here's where I am,  with my holiday basket table topper, along with the scrappy banded basket blocks for the November Block Lotto on my design wall.

Design Wall - November 18

Follow the link above to see what other quilters have on their design walls today. 

If you're wondering what changed, you can see my original idea for those bonus triangle squares here.  

I like the combination of basket blocks and boxes (squares).  I'm thinking maybe the squares should be put on point ... with appliqué bows added to turn them into gift boxes.  What do you think? 

I've been receiving excited email message from quilters who have received the tea towels they ordered (or won on eBay) for the tea towel challenge 2014.  Some lucky people, like Nann,  already collect them and now have the task of choosing ONE for their challenge quilt.   

If you're interested in joining the Tea Towel Challenge, check back Thursday for the official announcement (and giveaway!)  I am hoping my tea towels will arrive by then and I'll be able to share–a new one on the way from Spoonflower and a vintage southwest-inspired one from an eBay seller.
