I’ve been on a bit of a quilting hiatus with work being very busy and my sewing focus has been on projects that weren’t quilts. However, this week I started a new quilt project; I’m calling it my happy scrappy basket weave quilt.
It’s inspired by the Family Ties quilt from Busy Hands Quilts. It reminds me of a basket weave pattern with the black stripes going in different directions. I started by making 9 blocks to see if I liked the pattern sewn up.
I liked it. However the table cloth I photographed it on I don’t like. Note to self: time for a nicer tablecloth.
Making it was fun. And it went faster than I expected, even though I used 2.5″ squares rather than strip piecing with the colourful scraps. My box of 2.5″ squares is still over flowing but isn’t that always the way?
Here is the finished scrappy basket weave quilt top.
I haven’t decided on a border treatment or if I just want to bind it. But that’s a decision for another day!
