Blackbird Designs Basket Quilt

I have neglected to share a picture of a completed quilt.  I decreased the size of a Blackbird Designs basket pattern and did applique blocks using their fabrics.  I did add in another fabric that was not their line.  And the basket background fabric is from a separate Blackbird Designs line.  The background looks like a botanical dictionary.  I usually try to add in more variety than that but, in this case, it looked best using mostly the one line of fabric.  I used a layer cake for the baskets.  The setting is my own creation.  I did not want to set the baskets in a straight row across the quilt.  I like the offset look in this layout.  Additional information:  The basket design can be found in "Women of Grace & Charm".


A couple of close up shots so you can see the basket shape better and the background fabric.




We are having a lot of rain from the subtropical storm.  We need the rain but not so much at one time.

Have a good Sunday and take time to stitch a little.  I am prepping an applique block for "Celebrating Mary Brown".  A lot of pieces!

  11. The offset layout is wondeful. It visually highlights the baskets better. It's a beautiful finish.

  13. Lovely finish Karen. I like the use of gray, it makes the baskets distinctive. I looked up the Mary Brown quilt. It's a beauty but it will take some concentrated effort to complete. Best of Luck!
