I finished my basket quilt about 10 days ago but I was finally able to get some pictures. It seemed like when the sun was shinning I was not home and when I was home it was snowing. We have had a very wet spring. So without further ado here are some pictures of my basket quilt.
A friend said this quilt looked like Easter baskets since the color palette is pastels. I didn't set out to do that but I think she is right. I now think of it as my Easter basket quilt. It is currently hanging in my front hall to help celebrate the season.
I learned how to do the scalloped border which was a challenge rounding the corners and getting that to line up.
I used the bias bars to do all of the vines. They go from an 1/8" vine up to a 1/2" vine. The pattern called for yo-yos but I didn't want the texture they add so I just did circles. I think there are about 200 circles.
I did a leaf and loop background fill around the border applique. I wanted a more open fill. I really like how it turned out.
On the basket blocks I did stitch in the ditch around all the pieces then did some line dancing in the basket body.
For the chain blocks I quilted some arcs then did some fill in the arcs of leaves and c-curls.
Check out the back. Isn't this print wonderful? It has miniature pastel quilts printed on it. I really love it. I got it on sale at 75% off. Hard to beat that.
