Small Basket Quilt


First of all, we have this years old work in progress.  A huge basket quilt, which yes, I did finish the top this last year! It is also the one project from the last quarter of 2019 that I did NOT complete.  But no beating myself up here!  It's massize and will be completed some time this next year.


Since I overestimated how many basket blocks I would need for that quilt, I ended up with a few extra.  I threw them together in this baby quilt, and added some orange/yellow nine patches for variety.


I tried meander quilting to finish it, which I hadn't done in a while.  Consensus?  Meh... I like my horizontal straight lines which make for a softer quilt and just as nice of a texture.


The softness/cuddliness is saved somewhat by this cotton lawn backing, which always makes for a dream quilt texture.


And the blue striped binding is nothing to sniff at either!  Love these fabrics together!  And P.S. I realize I didn't clean up my threads before taking these photos...yup I'm in a hurry cuz I have one more quilt I want to finish binding before the FinishAlong deadline tomorrow!

Edited to Add:  Adding this to the Fourth Quarter Finishalong.  Here's my post with the original list of quilts to finish.
