Basket Psalms block

I finally finished another Psalms block! This one was a lot of fiddle fussy handpiecing so I kept putting it off :-). I have three more blocks to do for this quilt and they are easier ones. I hope to finish them over Christmas. The basket is called Berry Basket and was chosen to represent the line of Psalm 145: "The eyes of all look to you, and you give them their food at the proper time." The front of the block:

I had a hard time figuring out which way to press the seams. Pressing them toward the dark would produce too many bulky intersections, so finally I just kind of tossed the iron at the block and closed my eyes and pressed LOL. I will have to trim the dark seams and all the points so they can't be seen through the light background.

You're block looks great Jacqui. I think I would have appliqued the handle as Val would too.
But you did a great job any how.
