Basket Quilt

What’s on my machine lately?  Christine’s  beautiful basket quilt.  The best thing about being a quilt “finisher” is getting to “draw” and play around on quilts I didn’t have to piece!  I get to be creative with a wide variety of styles, colors and patterns.  As much as I like to design and paint, my machine quilting business is my “real” job.   Image

Here’s a close up on the quilting.  Christine wanted an all over design.  I included leaves & curls with gold thread.  All my quilting is “drawn” free hand without any patterns or the aid of a computer.  The border fabric has leaves and strawberries, so I added a strawberry to each basket.  Image

Here’s the whole quilt.  I love the colors.  Now it just needs the binding.  It has a finished size of  75″ x 75″.
