Basket Quilt

I finally finished my basket quilt. It turned out a lot better than I thought. I was discouraged by the quilting until I washed it and it krinkled. Nothing is better than a warm quilt from the dryer. I love this quilt.!! The picture does not do it justice. The baskets are quilted in the ditch . The large squares have hearts in a circle and the larger triangles have a fancy feather type heart. The four patches have an x. The white fabric is tone on tone and really gives it diminsion. Hope you like it. I forgot to add, that is my son behind the quilt. Isn't he handsome. LOL

Thanks Carrie. Please do come and visit again. I have about 5 quilt tops I need to get done and I have plenty of ideas for more. Sometimes I have to do new quilt tops just because.
Happy Stitching,

I made a lot of quilt tops over time and just am so slow in quilting them. I really dont have a recipient in mind but I am thinking on it. I wish I had a better camera so you could see the detail. Thanks for the compliments.
