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 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.
