I ended up using the vintage purple solid for the setting triangles. I think it works.
I like it, but not enough to hand quilt. The baskets were machine pieced and the handles were appliqued by machine as well. So I loaded it up on the long arm.
This is getting my wonky crosshatch. It fits these wonky blocks.
Have a great day!
Well would you look at how you rescued those “hot mess” blocks!! I love it.
I love the purple and your quilting really sets it off and covers up the cut off points! Hugs Great job!
Oh my–yes the purple does this quilt just fine–
I just love all your quilts!!! I am a hand quilter or domestic sewing machine quilter. But I DO LOVE the crosshatch you did on your basket quilt!!!
I just cannot figure out how you have time for all these projects!!!!
That appears larger than I thought it was. The close quilting should help it hold together.
It’s a sweet looking quilt! I think the quilting is perfect for it. Hugs,
I’m a sucker for basket quilts anyway but I so like your combining the “old” with the “new” . It finished off so beautifully! Took me years to break that self imposed “can’t machine stitch on something vintage”. Thanks for showing that it can be done successfully!
