Once in Awhile I Finish Something


I finished my Stash Baskets quilt.


It was difficult last night to get a good photo. No matter what I tried the lighting just wasn't right. 

It was all hand quilted - big stitches on the baskets and regular hand quilting in the ditch between blocks. 


I used Color Catchers when I washed it because I had used so many red fabrics.
There was no bleeding. 



72 x 84



I bought this fabric long ago thinking it would make a nice quilt back. 
It does.  All my uneven hand quilting blends right in. 

Doing any hand quilting today? 

Hmmm, what shall I work on next?

Congrats on your finish...it is just stunning!

Going to hand quilt today but first I am running to the store for some apples...I am in the mood to bake a pie. No wonder...it's 38 degrees out this morning so it feels like baking weather! :)

How pretty! It's been gray and dreary here for several days, and I love looking at your bright colors. And I never met a basket quilt that I didn't like!

Oh this turned out great! It has a French flair! The backing fabric is perfect! I find early mornings best for photography, but you got some great shots. I really love the close shots love seeing those quilting stiches. Congrats on a great finish!

I just love this basket quilt that you made. So much so that I want to make one of my own. I love how you use the different novelty prints like the candy cane and the watermelon fabric. Your quilt is very inspirational. Thank you for sharing.
