A Tisket A Tasket



A Tisket A Tasket
Have you seen my baskets? 

It sure feels good to finish a quilt and it's a nice way to end the week.  I went with a green/brown combination and am pretty pleased with how it turned out.  I think it works well with the different coloured baskets.

The weekend with hopefully be a relaxing one. I plan on working on my Civil War Bride quilt and maybe even start piecing Veranda Views

Until next time.....happy quilting!

It's beautiful! You did a great job of these blocks and pulling it all together. Love it!

How did you quilt each block? I'm looking for ideas on how to do mine and trying to decide on the quilting.

Yvette said...

I love it! You really did a fantastic job of putting it together. It makes me want to start working on mine again.

Wow! This looks perfect! Well done on getting it done (I've only got 4-5 finished...).

I love your fabric choices (the plaid basket with the scottie dog...the shamrock basket with the rabbit...SWEET!).

Your sashing and border fabrics set everything so nicely!

In stitches,
Teresa :o)
