Liberated Baskets Finished

Back In April I started a liberated basket quilt. see that post here

I finished hand quilting it today.

I used Aurifil 12 wt thread and a big stitch Quilting needle (Colonial Needle Co.) for the quilting.   The Batting is Mountain Mist Creme Rose, and the backing is unbleached Muslin.

After I got it out of the wash I took it outside to get some pictures.   (click pictures to enlarge)


It finished at 64″ x 78″

Teddy gave it a test inside on his chair.


While I was outside I took some more garden pictures

Happy Quilting/gardening

    Love the colors, Teddy seems to think so, too! If it passes the Teddy test, you know it’s good! And of course the flowers are amazing!

    Your quilt really suits the garden! Summer time, bees buzzing, clink of cold drinks and cool Teddy.

      thanks….it does look like summer…….I think when I started it I was so ready for summer that it just happened.. I think my color choices were part of my subconscious mood

    Delightful basket quilt! Like the unbleached muslin choice for a back, too. Must get some for my next quilt.

      I love to use that for the backing because it is easy to find in wide enough widths that it doesn’t need piecing….so one less step and one lees seam 🙂
