Baskets-a-go-go


Earlier this year I took part in the bloggers quilt festival, it was great, over 250 visitors to my blog, I visited more than 200 blogs, found some great ones that I wouldn't have stumbled across before. This is my entry for the Autumn Festival..... A big cheer for Amy - great idea!
I made this quilt forever ago, but I love it. It was for the Show that Empire Quilters in New York, had in 2002, it won a ribbon. I then entered it into the 'Transforming Traditions' (juried) show at Dean Clough with the Quilters Guild of the British Isles, again 2002. 63 by 86 cm, 25 by 34 inches.
It was the beginning of a really productive time for me.
Plain cotton, fused, fused binding, machine quilted.
Inspired by Karen Stone's technique.
