Featured Quilt Of The Week ~ 5

Here is my "Red Baskets" I made this quilt a few years ago and it was bought by the same man that I made the "Quilter's Snowflake" for. He had the first one made for his wife and his daughter loved the quilt so he came back and bought this one for his daughter.

I had planned on keeping it for myself, since I love red and white quilts, but the money was just too good to pass up. It is hard to see in the photo, but each basket is a different red print. It was longarm quilted by my friend Sandy.

I would love to make another red and white basket quilt someday to keep for myself! I guess I will just have to put it on my list...

I have a yearning to make a red and white quilt too. Those lists of ours are certainly getting longer - lol ! Your basket quilt is lovely and although you sold it you have a great excuse to do another - not that we need any excuses eh ?

Just beautiful! All of your quilts are just wonderful. But, thats another one I haven't made yet and the list is getting soooo long. Are you feeling better? Hope you are.

So pretty!

But then again, all you make fall into that category.

The quilting of the flowers and leaves was very appropriate.

That's a beautiful quilt. I've made several quilts that I've sold too. Each is hard to part with, but I've loved each and every one of them.
