Some on-line friends and I want to exchange "Stamp-Basket" blocks that we'll make on our people-powered machines. (PPMs = treadle or handcrank sewing machines.)
Here are some considerations for "low-volume" fabrics to use in Stamp-Basket blocks:
Because the low-volume makes these prints hard to see, remember that we can right-click on any photo and open it it a new tab or window to see the photo in a larger size. If it's still not detailed enough, we can use Control+ to make it even bigger.
While there are patterns for Stamp Basket blocks on line, I'm going to post tutorials for this block that are simpler and more accurate here on my blog in the coming weeks. (For the record, Stamp Baskets didn't get that name until the 1970s when the U. S. Postal service published a stamp with these simple blocks that had been around at least since my grandmother began making them in the early 20th century.)
