Dreamy Basket Quilt With Colorful Spring Posies

Make Your Own Basket Quilt Brimming With Buttoned Flowers.

Put this colorful quilt on the wall and bring a garden of  spring flowers into the room. 12 scrappy baskets filled with posies embellished with buttons, a fun Springtime quilt to make and display right through the new season to summer’s end.


Choose a layer cake overflowing with florals. The basket blocks are entirely layer cake friendly with almost no waste at all. Display your prettiest fabric on the baskets using 2 1/2″ squares. The remainder of 1/2” x 2 1/2” strips and 1” x 4 1/2” strips is leftover to add to your scrap stash. The florals are so pretty, the scraps are sure to be used up in no time.

12 pretty scalloped handles are cut out and secured using fusible web. Once the handles have all been cut, the remaining fabric strips are used for the baskets and border.
