Laundry Baskets...

I never met a basket quilt that I didn't like. This one is now quilted and hanging on my family room wall...

...scrappy is happy!


I used 100% cotton ric-rac by Moda and tucked it into the binding...



...which I cut on the bias for a nice finish.



White with green polka-dots for the setting triangles and outside border.




Moda Bella Solid #97 sandwiched between red and yellow for the stop borders...



The pattern is called "Laundry Baskets" by Fig Tree Quilts and my friend Helen Brutch did the fabulous quilting.
These bright colored scrappy baskets makes it look like spring in my Family Room....even though we had a huge snow storm here on Monday...I think spring will eventually get here!

Oooo...another beautiful quilt! You sure have a way with the scrappy fabrics :)
I don't know which is worse...a snowstorm in May or the 90 degree days we have ahead here in NJ...
Calgon, take me away!

Beautiful quilt. I love the cheery scrappy look. Is this a Figtree pattern or is it in a book? I looked on their website but did not find the pattern.
