Basket Weaving 101

Basket Weaving 101


Only a few more horizontal rows left to quilt with perle #8 and then the row of baskets needs to be quilted - probably in regular hand quilting thread. 

I won all of the blocks from Block Lotto last year.  Lucky me...I won several times last year.  I pieced together the batting from the mountain of leftover pieces piled in the corner of the room and I had the different colors of perle on hand as well as the backing so this is practically a free quilt. 

This is my May goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes

Love how you quilted this! Also the combo of blocks really play off of each other and then the perfect name! Great all around
