Same but different...

I had a professor that used that phrase a lot - "same but different." That was sort of my approach to two projects I worked on yesterday.

First is my basket block for Victoria's Pixie Dust Gathering. I did a basket using the pinks and greens she sent.

That morning I read Barbara Brackman's blog, http//barbarabrackman.blogspot.com, where she showed the block she made for the American Quilt Study Groups Endowment Committee fundraiser. So inspired I also made a 4 inch block with some of my reproduction scraps. I wish I could make it to the Seminar this fall in California but it looks like I will have to wait another year. If you are interested in quilt history you should check out this orgnaization and Barbara Brackman's blog.I will have a lot of envelopes to put in the mail today....
