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.
