My Buds in a Basket quilt is finished and I am stoked. Here are some pictures of “Buds in a Basket”:
My custom long arm quilter is Joyce Brenner, who just moved from Manistee, Michigan to the Lansing area. I think she did a fabulous job!
Changes I made to the pattern: I added another basket to each row, and my quilt measures 76.5 wide and 79.5 long. I know some added wider borders to also make their quilt bigger. The pattern by Sachiko Yasuda, is from the book "A Bouquet of Quilts" and finishes at 70" by 82 3/4". I don't think I made my outermost white border as wide as the original quilt. I think at the point I was making the outer two borders, I didn't even look at the book and just forged ahead.
A second note that I would share about making this quilt: When I started it years ago, I was new to quilting and was "by the book" with every little thing. I put each round circle and leaf in exactly the same place in each basket. If I was starting it today, I would place the buds and leaves randomly in each basket, and relax a little bit. LOL
Here are some pictures of other Buds in a Basket from the internet:

Buds in Basket is a darling quilt. Love the vintage look.
Your baskets and blooms quilt is BEAUTIFUL. If you ever tire of I I can give it a home where it will be loved!!!
Congrats on a beautiful finish! It's always such a nice feeling to get an older UFO off the list.
On the labels, I've used ink jet printers for my labels for years and I've never had any problems with the print on the labels coming off with washings. Sometimes they do fade just a bit, but all of mine are still readable.
I love your Buds in a Basket, she's a beauty for sure! I'm going to bookmark this post so I can refer back to it in the future. The last time I was shopping, I did buy some larger 30's flowered fabrics to use in my quilt. I'm not starting yet but hopefully maybe next year. Happy stitching!
What a stunning finish on your baskets--great work hugs, Julierose
Oh My - that is a stunner!!!
Your finish is gorgeous. I enjoyed watching the progress on this quilt over the years. Congrats! on such a beautiful quilt finish.
You did an absolute job on this quilt! It is Beautiful and love your border and quilting. Congrats! This one is on my bucket list! Bought the pattern when you first started posting about it! Love it! Hugs
that quilt is SO SO pretty. I love it, now I want to make it! Crikey! I have so many projects but it's really just the kind of quilt I love
Oh that is a wonderful quilt. I had to laugh and commiserate with you on how exact you were when you first started quilting. I would have done the same thing. As to labels. About 10 years ago I bought several different fabric sheets designed to make labels. I then printed the same label with a photograph on all of them. The one that did the best was Electric Quilt's basic cotton sheets. I haven't tried Bubble Jet or other fixatives. I'd be interested to see how they do.
I love your Buds in a Basket quilt. iT IS SO Charming with the 30's prints.
What a beauty your basket quilt is! Thanks for the close ups; so nice to see those lovely fabrics and quilting lines.
That is absolutely gorgeous Judy! Congratulations on such a beautifully finished quilt... so much sewing in that treasure!
The quilting is lovely too!
Your basket quilt is a real beauty!!
What a gorgeous finish! I love the other versions too. I'm very interested in how your label experiment comes out--I'm very bad about getting that last detail onto my quilts.
I bought the book "A Bouquet of Quilts" because of this pattern, but I have not made it yet. Your quilt is beautiful! I will need to find the book and get started.

It looks great, Judy, and I love how Joyce quilted it for you! Your baskets appear to be lined up neatly on shelves. Congratulations on your lovely finish!
Hi Judy, what a gorgeous quilt! Isn't it amazing how we change and get a little more carefree about our quilting as we age or perhaps as we know what we're doing! Congratulations on your finish. Take care.
