Basket quilt


I'm happy to say I finished another quilt top today!
This one has been in my
"Work on it once in a while" pile.
;)

This quilt began innocently enough.
It was a little basket block made with scraps.
"CUTE!" I thought.....
"I'll make some more".
When I'd made a few more I KNEW it needed to be a quilt.

Now it IS.

It's also QUEEN sized.
Hooray!
This is one I'll USE!
The applique in the border is very FREE form...
Needle turned...
and NOT
FUSSY in the LEAST.

JUST the way I like it.

Thought this black and white photo looked great.
Aren't smart phones FUN??
Wish I knew HALF of what they're capable of!!!

Happy QUILTING!!!
