Ever since I got Gwen Marston's Liberated Quiltmaking ll for Christmas, I've been wanting to make her basket quilt. I don't have a photo of the quilt in her book, but here are a few fun ones I found on Flickr.
here to see who made these lovelies.
I'm planning on making this a generous lap size, and thinking it just miiiight stay at our house. I'm using some of all my favorite fabrics.
I think this quilt block is a win-win situation for me. The entire process of choosing the fabrics to go together in each block, cutting each basket in a slightly different shape, etc., just keeps it fun for me. I have this problem that after making a couple blocks for a quilt, I just get a bit bored. I'm thinking this one might be different. The way Gwen shows you how to make these blocks is so super fun and easy, I highly recommend it!
