Lynda’s Basket Quilt

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!
