Baskets and Rails Quilts Completed

I saw a picture of a quilt on Pinterest and I loved the simple design. It had large squares that showed off a pretty fabric and rail fence blocks set on point. There was no pattern, name of maker, or any information so I made the pattern based on the picture. I am a terrible photographer so my photos do not do justice to the lovely colors. It is a very large quilt that completely covers my queen size bed with a generous overhang.

This is the Baskets a-Plenty quilt that I started a few months back and posted it without the borders as I couldn’t decide what to use to make it bigger. I finally decided on Flying Geese along the edges. It is a very colorful queen size quilt.

Slowly but surely I am working down my pile of UFOs (unfinished objects for my non quilting friends.) If I could just make a dent in all the quilt ideas floating around in my head I would be in good shape.

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.
