BASKET TOP FINISHED AND ANOTHER KIT FOR SALE

I'm so happy to have my Baskets for You quilt top finished!!  All the 128 baskets are appliquéd!  Yippee!!  I can't believe I hand appliquéd a whole quilt top.  I never thought I would do that, but I'm glad I did.  I plan to baste it later this week.


 
Another first for me will be the scalloped border.  We shall see how that goes…..



I have another quilt kit for sale.  It isn't really a kit, but is a pattern with the fabrics that D's aunt had picked out to use for the quilt.  Pattern is by Valori Wells, from the Stitchin' Post in Sisters, OR.


There are lots of bright fabrics in this kit in various size cuts.  I looked at all of them and I think there is enough here for the smaller size quilt in the pattern, which is 52" x 52".  The larger size is  70" x 70" and it calls for 14 different fabrics, which is the number of fabrics in the bag, not counting the backing piece.  The pattern is one of the nicest patterns I have seen lately, with a page to paste swatches of each fabric so you can keep it all straight.


Most of the bright fabrics are from St. Jude's Hospital Quilt of Dreams line.


Others are from Hancocks.  There is also 2 fat 8ths bundles.


This green is Quilters Crayons by Hancock fabrics is probably for the backing and there is about 3 yards, but it's in 2 pieces.



Price is $80.00 for all the fabric and the pattern.
Shipping $11.30 Priority Mail

We were lucky to have DS#1 visit us for 24 hours over the weekend.  He was in Houston for his yearly job training and testing (he's a pilot) and stopped here on his way back home.  





Thanks for visiting!

Congratulations on that fabulous basket quilt! What a wonderful study of blues!! My first and only scalloped border was on my Dear Jane. It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. You'll be just fine:) How fun to see your son even if it was for a short time.
