Basket block

I knew this week that every minute would count.  At the end of the week, I am off to Toowoomba in Queensland, for the quilt show, and to visit with my friend Penny.  The next basket block is due, and I had to spend some time sitting around today, while I went with my husband to see his eye specialist.  I drew up the block last week, and cut out the template.  This morning I drew the templates onto the back of the fabrics, and cut them out to take with me.  I sat around for 2 hours while tests, and scans and consultation went on.  I finished just as we were paying the bill - WOW!!  2 hours.

Hope you like this little basket.  I called it Betty's Basket.  That was my dear mother's name, and she did not actually have a basket like this, but she always had a large bag over her arm, full of goodies.

The pattern is available to download on the Legend and Lace website.  Let me know if you have a problem.  You have the buy the block, even though there is no charge, and put it into you "shopping cart" and go through all the boring stuff.  When finished, you will get a link emailed to you.  From that link you can download the PDF pattern.


  1. Hi Wendy,
    I just got my download -- thanks! How many basket blocks will there be all together?

  2. There will be 12 basket blocks, as I made 12 applique blocks. You may need to make one extra in order to get a nice setting for a quilt. To have a square quilt, with the blocks on point, you need 27 blocks. If you want to make a rectangular quilt set straight 4 x 6 then you will have enough.
