Lynda’s Basket Quilt

Posted on Updated on


This basket quilt is my latest customer quilt finish, and I’m really proud of how it turned out.

These baskets were made by Lynda’s grandmother in the LyndaJ-baskets341990’s, if I remember correctly.  Her mom had been saying for years that she should do something with them.

So, Lynda and her daughter snuck them out of the house during a recent visit and surprised her mom by making them into a table topper quilt.

I’m pretty sure they aren’t going to serve dinner on this one!

LyndaJ-baskets27It’s quilted using a varietyLyndaJ-baskets45 of free motion quilting designs with Superior’s Omni thread, Warm and Natural 100% cotton batting.

I really wanted to make sure that the baskets were emphasized and Lynda didn’t want feathers so I used on overall leaf pattern in the light green areas.  The thread color matched so perfectly I had a hard time seeing where I had actually already sewn! 

I’m always amazed at how the back of the quilt shows off the designs!
