This is the design for the red and white basket quilt. It is one of my favorite old fashioned quilt patterns. It’s hard to know whether I like it so much because it’s red and white or because it’s baskets.
The most traditional red and white basket quilts were plain baskets set on point on a muslin background. For this one, I’m using a white Kona cotton and red Fossil Fern fabric. For now, I’ll just have to give you the EQ7 photo of the original quilt and some variations as I have been a little busy this week–those babies are absolutely adorable.
And here’s the same quilt with the block that has three hearts. My preference is the block with hearts.
