basket love

After reading Jolene's post on fabric and seeing pictures of her beautiful basket quilt, I simply had to start one myself. (I'm following Gwen Marston's instructions in her Liberated Quiltmaking II book)


I'm so absolutely in love with all these colors - so springy and bright.
And, speaking of spring, she finally decided to show up so I'm off to enjoy this beautiful day (it will include some sewing, of course).

Wishing you all a wonderfully gorgeous spring Sunday too. Svetlana

  1. Svetiana, love your basket quit. I agree the colors are so "spring like." I had the opportunity to take a workshop last year from Gwen Marston. Love her work and she is such a gracious lady. Happy Sunday to you!

  19. I like the fact that they are all just a tad wonky. That along with the fabric choices, make this an exciting masterpiece.

  21. I'm definitely too slow (I don't know who is responsable, me, the kids, the tiredness every evening, alltogether). You made a quilt top in no time. *sigh* Someday...
