A Finish!

I started this little quilt at a retreat in November.  After I got the top pieced, I couldn't quite decide what to do with it.  Someone suggested that I set it on point, because the basket pattern doesn't stand out very well.  So, corner triangles were added.  When I took it to the quilt store to audition fabrics, another customer suggested the piping.  So, piping it is!  One of my goals this year is to learn new techniques, so I was successful with this one.

I had to piece the back, so I had a little fun with it, and added a basket.  Then came the big question of how to quilt it.  It took awhile until the obvious solution came to mind.

I couldn't find a basket stencil, so I designed this with a couple of triangles and a plate.  And if you can see - even the bindings are sewed down.
