What a cute quilt! The DS fabric works perfectly for baskets.
It's beautiful Jolene!
I love your use of DS in this quilt! It is gorgeous!
I have been checking out the quilt shops and joann's for this book ever since you first mentioned it. I finally happened upon it at a barnes and noble. Wow. It's a really great reference book! Thanks for sharing, and another great quilt too. :)
You can most definitely be both! This is lovely!!
I love your baskets - so far I've only done traditional basket blocks but I want to have a go at these liberated ones!
LOVE this quilt!
Oh my goodness that is so cute! It really has a vintage feel to it. Very cool!

Wow, this is so creative. The combination of the soft pink, yellow and aqua and the bold blue, red and turquoise is so unsual. And it totally, totally works. Well done (again)!!!

Wow, this color palette is gorgeous! I think you most certainly can be both.

It's gorgeous! I have the book on my christmas list but I'm not sure i can wait that long.
really cute. it can be fun to mix the soft and bright all together.
This is really a sweet quilt....love the pale, soft colors!
Hi Jolene,Love this quilt. I just receive the book yesterday and look forward to making this quilt. Would you mind sharing who makes the blue/white stripe fabric. It really works well in this quilt. Thanks so much!
I've been staring at this quilt all night and decided to start making baskets. They're addicting! I have made about 6 tonight. Thanks for the inspiration. I have to make a similar quilt now because I have been wanting a basket quilt and yours are so dang adorable. Great job!
Oh and I'm following you now. You do great work!~Amber
Beautiful. Awesome. Love it!
I love this quilt! The fabrics and the colors... it gives me a sense of summer. :-)
love the colors and balance in this quilt, Jolene. It's beautiful! xo amy
Hi Joline! I just discovered your blog through another gal that I follow - and LOVE it! LOVE your quilting, you have the same tastes as I do :) I have been wanting to make a basket quilt for ever... but those dang handles keep stalling me out! How did you do yours? I made a go of the bias cuts and trying to press the edges was a complete failure! LOL!! Would love a hint if you figured out another way!! :) Will definitely be following you, and looking forward to reading all your past posts! Blessings, Bren
I really love this! I must be out of the quilting loop because this is the first I'm seeing of these baskets. Great job!
Any chance you can explain how you made the handles so lovely?
Jolene, I just wanted you to know that this quilt inspired me to make a table runner for my mother-in-law. I've been wanting to make a baskets quilt for a long time ever since I got Gwen Marsten's book. You can see my table runner here: http://veronicamade.wordpress.com/2012/12/28/a-handmade-christmas/ Thanks for the inspiration!
All I can do is smile when I see your basket quilts. :-) :-) :-) Thanks from here to the moon & back.
