Basket Weave Quilt


For such a long time I wanted to make a pink and brown quilt. I misplaced my pattern, but I think the pattern is called the Basket Weave Quilt.

I added this wide border to make a waved edge, but after seeing the quilting I changed my mind. I really like how the quilting is showing in the border and I think I am going to leave the border just as it is.


I used a panto from Urban Elementz and it is called Hyacinth.


My scrappy pink backing.


I quilted this black and white quilt for Paula. Her quilt is over 100" wide and long...just a beautiful quilt. She made the quilt for her daughter.


I quilted her quilt with the Bubbles panto.


Close up of the borders in white and black.


Paula also made a scrappy backing from all the leftover black and white fabrics.


Happy Quilting!

Millie- I quilted the Hyacinth pattern today . I may be doing something wrong but mine has a lot of openness at the beginning and the end. I think I need to play around with it a little! Love both your quilts!

How pretty your basketweave quilt is! Your quilting on it is really pretty, too! And that black and white one - WOW! My daughter would love it. I'm more fond of color. :) I think you do some of the most beautiful quilting around.

I love both quilts.....two of my favorite color combinations! your quilting is so pretty...I can do all the fancy stuff, but almost always just stipple...probably because I can freehand it so easy...

I like the use of the stripe fabric in the Basket Weave quilt! It really makes the quilt.

Hi Millie,

Congratulations on a job well done on the Basket weave Quilt! It's beautiful! I always wanted to make a Brown and Pink quilt as well.

The black and white quilt is very pretty ,too. I started collecting black and white prints for a quilt, too.

Happy sewing!

See me? I'm jumping up and down in sheer delight. First of all I find that I am in love with the panto from Urban Elementz called Hyacinth. Then of course there is this fantastic B & W quilt from Paula - so big! - with a great quilting job.

I don't think I've every seen an icky job come out of your Quilting Studio my friend. I haven't seen my friend Max in a long while either. I mean, while I'm on the topic of things I haven't seen.

:) Your friend for quite a while now, *karendianne.

What a great quilt - so graphic. Don't you love this block, it's so versatile. Thanks for sharing.
