I've been making things as long as I can remember, thanks to my Mom who is a great seamstress! My favorite has been quilting for 25 years now and now that my husband and I are empty nesters I am enjoying the opportunity to expand my expertise and creativity in this art. Pattern writing is a new outlet for me and I am enjoying sharing my creations. I especially love making patterns that are encouraging for beginner quilters - I try to make sure my directions are clear and well illustrated to take the frustration out of quilting and make it a joyful process!
Thanks so much for looking at my patterns!
The beautiful blue and yellow roses in the cover quilt absolutely inspired this quilt design - the moment I saw it I thought it would have to be baskets! After that first quilt I was on the hunt for beautiful fabric to make a basket quilt for every season - I finished my Thanksgiving version, and a beautiful Christmas version. This is a fun quilt to make and I look forward to completing a summer version, too! I'm sure you won't be able to stop at one either.
Fill these lovely baskets with your choice of beautiful flowers, fruit or whatever fabric design tickles your fancy. This is a good design for a strong beginning quilter and is great practice for making half square triangles. This quilt has as many possibilities for color and feel as there are fabrics! I give design options for a two color basket, as well.
