Raffle Quilt - Whacky Baskets

Hoo-ee! Our SpoolSpinner raffle quilt for the Guild has been quilted!

Next the binding---which will be the same striped fabric that was used in the inner border.


Here is a close-up of a "blank" corner, where you can see the imaginative quilting showing up against the black.
Boy! It doesn't show against those baskets.


Also you can see the applique flowers, made from basket scraps, better here. I sure didn't participate in that part of the project.


Just for scale here is a photo of the discussion following the Reveal. Catherine Martin, who did the machine quilting, is in the light green.
Everyone is delighted with how it has come out. Lots of "ooo-ing and aah-ing".
The remaining basket blocks are going to made into quilt tops for Bee members, two or three tops of different sizes. I have my part put together in a top, but maybe I will add borders as well. We figure out some way to draw names or ??? at our December party.

What a happy quilt! And the quilting is just right for it! I love all the different baskets, and the applique border is outstanding. I'm with you on the applique - it's always someone else's job, not mine! Great quilt!
