Flower Basket

A new finished wall quilt.  Small in size.  The pattern I used is "Flower Basket" and is a Cheri Payne design.

The photo makes the quilt look more narrow on the bottom but it is just the camera angle.  I used French General fabric for the basket and the final border.  More of the alphabet fabric that I like.  Now all I have left is small scraps of it.  All the fabrics came from my stash.  I don't think you can see the button well enough to know that it has a horse head on it.  The button is on the very top flower.  Just something I had in the button box.

I plan on spending some quality time in the sewing room today.  Maybe you can too.

Love the border you used, gives it a new look.
I need to go through my patterns, have lots of flower ones and my sister is doing a garden room, maybe two small ones from the stitcheries you sent me.

My quilts always do that in photos, even though I think it is straight on, one side always looks smaller.

I just love this quilt! Seeing it inspires me to get my rear in gear and make an appliqué quilt! Sooner rather than later, too.
