Okay, so maybe these aren't really baskets, but they look like it to me! I love the look of an applique border on a pieced quilt. I shy away from the "a" word myself, but I certainly appreciate all the work that goes into it. This one was quilted with the pantograph Tulip Basket by Willow Leaf Studio.
Another of Patricia's quilts--she doesn't do "small"! This one was quilted with freehand feathers everywhere except for the appliqued sections of the border. The applique was outlined and a small stipple filled the background. There's nothing better than a scrap quilt, don't you agree?
