I love basket quilts, there are so many beautiful antique quilts made with basket blocks. My nighttime reading is always studying the antique quilts that fascinate me. For the Scrappy Baskets Quilt I chose the 'Flower Basket' block, there are plenty of options in this block where I could play with my scrap fabrics. I love all the different mixture of fabrics and colors together in this quilt. It was so much fun discovering all the fabulous fabric finds that were in my scrap bin collection. It was like reuniting with old friends.
The pattern for the Scrappy Baskets Quilt gives you two cutting options, 1/2 square and 1/4 square rulers or the traditional cutting methods. That way you can make this quilt with your 2 1/2 inch strips or Jelly Rolls.
