Baskets, many baskets

Another quilters' Wednesday, another binding done! Today was red-letter day at the daytime meeting - three people said "Hello Lynley!" I'm not much of a joiner, or mingler, so it takes a while to get to that level of recognition, trust me. That's the main reason I started in the guild twenty years before most of the ladies ... it'll take me that long to fit in and get comfortable.

Anyway, it was a good to chance to finish these baskets. I'd done the hand quilting a month or two ago but put aside the binding to do later, as you do. I like the colours and the style of this quilt. I doubt I'd make another liberated basket one - there's only so much you can do with it as a pattern - but this is nice. It has a lovely soft rumple to it too because of the handquilting on cotton batting.

The baskets I quilted with clamshells, and the borders a freeform zigzag.


  1. I love your liberated baskets quilt--gorgeous!
