This is a basket quilt I made in 2000. I don’t recall where I got the pattern. The quilt is 41 inches square. The baskets were fused on and then blanket stitched with embroidery thread.
It’s easier to see the stitching detail on this basket.Each flower petal begins with a circle. The circle is folded into quarters and gathered along the edge. Each flower takes five petals. The center is a “yo-yo” and a button.
