And I tried to do this basket block after reading Quilt Hollow and watching the Alex Anderson video she shared a link to - the handle was a little tricky but I think I could get the hang of this after making several more.
Hubby & I have lived in our home for 30 years now, and one of the first things we did as newlyweds was hang grasscloth wallpaper in our kitchen - where it has remained all this time. However - it was looking really sad and we decided it was time to update the whole room, so I spent three entire days last week removing it as best I could. It had to be taken off in three layers - first the fibers that kinda look like burlap - then the paper backing - and finally the glue. Whew! Talk about exhausting! Never again will we have wallpaper in our house - even if it DOES come back in style! Now we need to repair damage done to the wall during the removal, then comes fresh paint.
