A Tisket A Tasket – It’s a Wedding Basket

One of my passions is quilting.  I am fortunate enough to also be a longarm quilter having the opportunity to collaborate with quilters all over the country to help them finish their works of love.

The quilt I am sharing with you today is made by a friend of mine, who will be giving this to her granddaughter as a wedding shower gift.  My friend is the mother of 5 and grandmother of 23 I believe.  This is the first grandchild to get married so it is a very exciting time.  My friend made these baskets a while back and then put them away, when her granddaughter made the big announcement my friend knew this would be the quilt to celebrate this occasion.

The large baskets are 9″ and the small baskets are 3″

The 9 patch blocks that include the 3” baskets took approximately 18 minutes to quilt, there are 20 of these 9 patch blocks.  I used brown thread in the border and a creamy white in the blocks, except for the feathered ovals in the large baskets, there a used a mustard gold thread.  I was thrilled to be asked to quilt this lovely quilt for my friend.  I think we made a good team on this one.

The back is a almost as pretty as the front.
