I did this quilt about five years ago. I had found the pattern in an old book from Better Homes and Gardens called "Quilting pieces of the Past". Being a fan of baskets, when I saw the picture of this quilt I "fell in love" with it at first sight! I had a lot of brown fabrics and scraps in my stash and thought it would be a good opportunity to use them. For each basket I used a different fabric. 

The quilt is single bed size and is machine pieced, machine quilted and hand applique.

  7. It is a lovely quilt. Scrap quilts are always fun to make. I have always wanted to create a basket quilt, but somehow, I just haven't. So many pattern choices for creating quilts. LOL would have to be able to make a quilt every single day in order to make every one that catches my attention. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful creative day!
