Baskets Revisited

Remember these?

Well here, they are all finished. For a long time I've wanted to remake that basket pattern with a different look. And since I am in the middle of my teal & orange period, I thought it would be fun to do this:
It was a very fun little exercise and I'm quite pleased with the result. This one was a little more for the eyes to take in, so I sashed the blocks. I really like how the sashing blends with the background of the block below and makes that white basket (with the teal flowers - one of my favorite fabrics!) look like it is floating.
And the back was fun too. These extra baskets were a little too wonky, but they still needed a good home. Not my first pieced back, but my first with improv blocks. VERY fun. And addicting. I'm excited to do more of that.
And so, I'm adding this pattern for sale in the etsy shop.
If you order, I will email you a PDF copy to print on your own computer. Quick and easy and cuts costs - like no shipping!

If you are interested, and you buy it by the end of the month, I will include the pattern for the Mr. Roboto quilt for FREE!

PS. Don't forget to check-out the 'extravaganza' below, if you haven't already done so.

  1. You really are putting some wonderful things in your Etsy shop. Love the baskets. Finishing up my basket quilt got put on hold while I meet some other deadlines. Seeing yours makes me want to hurry and get back to it.

    I found you via Nordic Crafts, and I am so glad that I did! I've wanted to learn to quilt for so long. I've been collecting fabrics and books, but I've never jumped in. I am just so that I can use your patterns! Heading to your etsy shop now. :)
