Bloomin Baskets Quilt | Sharon Keightley Quilts

The Bloomin Baskets Quilt has returned home this week after being a cover girl in the Todays Quilter Magazine. It has taken a while to come home with the postage being slow during the covid pandemic the magazine decided it was better to wait before sending it home. Its always a treat to receive quilts back after they have been away. My Granddaughter Ayla loves the quilt, I love watching her feel the fabrics and the applique flowers with their dimension are very intriguing to her. 

You can find the pattern here on my website, or you may have a copy of issue #64 Todays Quilter magazine which has the pattern also.

Good Morning Sharon,
I have a question regarding your Bloomin’ Baskets pattern. I’m using the instructions in my Today’s Quilter. I absolutely love this quilt and am making it in blues and cream.
Do I trim the large half square triangles to a specific size?
I’m afraid to begin sewing my 2 1/2 inch hst’s until I know the answer.
Thank you!

The inspiration for this quilt came from a small picture of part of an antique quilt, made with the nine patch block. I think what inspired me was the use of colour and of course the wonderful use of the flying geese blocks in the border.
I hope you enjoy my pictures of this quilt.

Invisible machine applique seems to be mostly associated with either smoke or clear monopoly or nylon threads. When starting my journey with invisible machine applique these are the threads I used too. Now of course there are so many wonderful threads available, many of them suitable. The only thing that may be of concern is that you need a variety of colours, with monopoly smoke and clear threads there are only two colour choices, therefore limiting how many colours you need. Read more about my thread choices.
