Buds in a Basket Quilt

This project is proof that with a little stitch here and a little stitch there, the project will EVENTUALLY get done!!  And it surprisingly didn’t take all that long!

The actual baskets were fast and easy to make…you make the rounded template…cut out the shapes and then sew the curves together…All the round flowers and leaves are hand appliquéd (using the starch and freezer paper method).

Now it’s playtime…Oh my…didn’t they multiply…

I was scrambling for more of this soft cream coloured Kona cotton…whew…got to love your stash!  Whenever I see Kona cotton on sale down south I always buy some yardage…and I must REALLY love this cream colour because I had tons of it!

P1230363Yup…I’m loving these little baskets!!   P1230381  The pattern is called ‘Buds in a Basket Quilt’ by designer Sachiko Yasuda and can be found in the book ‘A Bouquet of Quilts’.  This buds for you!  :o)  I just HAD to say it!

The sun is shining and the grass is blinding my eyes it’s so GREEN…and so are those dang weeds!!  Can you guess what I’ll be doing today?  In between pulling a few of those weeds…I think it will be smelling some of my own buds…rose buds that is!  I hope you get to smells a few buds today too! Have a good one!  ~P

  1. When I see something like this, I regret having given away all my 30's fabrics. The baskets are going to make a wonderful quilt.
