Basket Quilt

These basket blocks took me about a year to applique. I love applique work but never have alot of time to do it. So finishing these blocks was a major accomplishment. I actually finished them about a year ago and when I was looking for projects to take on my quilt retreat, discovered them in a projects bin. What a delightful find! The fabric was all there too, for borders and sashing. So before I left for retreat I got everything cut and then it took quite a few hours to get this quilt top put together. The colors are some of my favorites. When this quilt gets done it will go into the rotation of quilts that I hang behind my sofa in the living room.
