Progress on Baskets A-Plenty Quilt

dscn0883

I have finished the basic layout and joining the blocks on my Baskets A-Plenty quilt. The pattern called for 72 baskets but I needed a bigger quilt so I ended up with 111  7 1/2″ basket blocks. This is where I leave the pattern behind and strike out on my own. I will be adding a small white border all around and I think I will add some flying geese blocks on each side. Not sure about the geese but I need something to make it a little wider to fit a queen size bed so if not geese then….who knows what.

I am a retired grandmother living in sunny and hot Florida. I spend most of my days doing what I love: sewing and quilting. I have a spoiled rotten Boston Terrier named Sami who keeps me busy mostly by cleaning up after her and refilling holes in the yard that she insists on digging and burying her toys. Of course then she digs them up and brings them into the house resulting in...you guessed it...more cleaning. I will be posting pictures of Sami, quilts, flowers, and other things as they come along. Glad to have you join me.
