Basket Progress

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.

  2. I love the purple and your quilting really sets it off and covers up the cut off points! Hugs Great job!

    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!!!!

  5. That appears larger than I thought it was. The close quilting should help it hold together.

    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!
