Other Fabrics Will be Just as Stunning!
If you love basket quilts, look no further. This version is simple to construct and is so very charming.
Easy piecing and fusible applique make this easier to make than it may seem at first glance. The hardest part may be deciding which fabrics to use.
An wide variety of 1930s reproduction prints are perfect, giving the quilt a decidedly vintage feel. However, it will be just as charming with a more modern approach. For example, batiks will be simply stunning.
Making each basket of different colors adds to the vintage look. However, a coordinated color scheme will be lovely, as will a colored background.
Let your imagination play with coloring this design. you’re sure to create a gorgeous one-of-a-kind quilt you’ll treasure for years to come.
The finished size of this quilt is 50″ x 50″. You can make it larger by adding more blocks.
