Big Bold Baskets Quilt

 

 

 

 

 

The Bold Baskets Quilt combines an original basket design that uses striped fabric for the basket to look like a real woven basket.  The baskets can be “filled” with a floral fabric or you can use a background fabric and do “broderie perse” appliqué flowers.  Then the basket blocks are placed on point and surrounded by fabric strips before setting them together.  The border combines triangles – plain, fabric strips, or paper-pieced flowers (or combinations of any two of these) for a unique, original design quilt.  The blocks are large so it doesn’t take many to make a large quilt – nine for full size, sixteen for king size – but you can also do a wall hanging with one to four blocks.
