Back in April, I showed you these basket blocks that I made for an exchange:
Now that the exchange has been made, I am starting a replica of an old quilt with them. The directions have been figured out for me thanks to Lori, the blogger at Humble Quilts Here. Thanks Lori! The original quilt can be seen in the quilt index Here
The original quilt:
The quilt has been bookmarked in my copy of the book "New Jersey Quilts 1777 to 1950" for a long time. I love the touch of yellow in a few of the block backgrounds. I may do that too. It's on page 109, if you have the book. I know my quilt has baskets, and this one has stars, but I think it will look great with baskets too.
My pink and green zigzag fabrics are both "Judie's Authentic Miniatures" from Judie Rothermel, Marcus Brothers.
Sally has approved of it, but is not too excited yet because she knows it will take a long time to get to the stage where she can lay on it.
It's Monday, so I'm going over to Patchwork Times to look at other design walls. (Here)
