Baskets Quilt Will Become a Family Heirloom |
Choose “Vintage” or Modern Fabrics to Make This Quilt Uniquely “You”!
The designer of this sweet quilt, Kathy Munkelwitz, used original feed sacks for her version, but this quilt will be equally lovely in 1930s reproduction fabrics. The pattern is fat quarter friendly so make it as scrappy as you like.
If modern is more your thing, choose somewhat larger scale prints and make it as fun and colorful as you want.
When selecting fabrics, keep an eye on value (light to dark) so that the flowers are all about the same. Choose one unifying fabric for all the baskets and and a similar fabric for the inner border.
We like the contrast between the dark blue baskets and softer flowers, and can easily imagine this quilt made with other color combinations, as well (mint green baskets come to mind!).
Simple piecing is used to create the baskets and pinwheel flowers, while applique flower blocks add interest between the baskets. They combine to make a lovely quilt that your family will cherish for generations.
The finished quilt is 76″ x 91″.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
