Basil Garden

Peg, the daughter of some old friends in California is off to college this Fall in Southern Cal. Beth says she likes blue, so after racking my brains for something special that I could do quickly, I finally decided to resurrect this blue and beige Basil Garden that I've been working on forever. It was actually the first quilt I ever started. Since i'm not very systematic and hate to follow instructions, I just made masses and masses of these tiny blue/indigo/ tea dye nine-patches, which means there are already almost enough for two quilts. I still want to make one for moi me me sometime down the line, but maybe finishing one will be motivating. All I need to do is make some more rail fence blocks to connect them et voilá!
