Finish It Up Friday ~ The Basket Quilt

The quilt made from the Tree of Life charm pack and the basket block is finished! The first pictures are before washing. 

The rest of these show the quilt after washing. 

And this is where I decided to hang the quilt. 

It turns out the background is almost a dead ringer for my wall color!

Now, what shall I make next?

Have a great weekend!

    Beautiful wall hanging. Looks very stunning over your fireplace mantel. The border and quilting is gorgeous.

  3. Absolutely gorgeous! I love the colours, and the quilting. Actually, my husband was sitting beside me while I looked at this and he even said, “Nice quilting!” Where you have it hung is perfect, and the decorative piece above it just caps it off perfectly.

  4. How pretty, and it seems to just float there!

    Katy, this one turned out to be an awesome wall hanging!! The pieced blocks really complement the center block, and your quilting is just perfect! It looks great hanging over the mantle…..great finish!!

    It has been fun to watch the progress of this quilt of yours. It really turned out gorgeous. Each step along the way took your original panel from ordinary to extraordinary. The tea dyeing pulled the colors together, the borders provided both a frame and a quilting opportunity at which point you “iced the cake” with exquisite quilting. Thanks for inspiring us…again!

    Lovely–especially with the old-timey look the washing gives it. It is so striking above your fireplace. I’m sure you’ll think of something else to work on…

    Wow! The tea bath did the trick and the quilt looks great! I’m always impressed with everything you do. I love the feather quilting in the wide border. It was a great choice.
