    Basket Quilt with Civil War Fabrics

    I was gifted a kit for a Civil War Quilt, but the pattern did not speak to me. I just held onto the kit for a while. The fabrics were beautiful so I really wanted to make use of them. Eventually I came across a free pattern called Betsy's Baskets (on the Robert Kaufman website) and decided it would be a good fit for the fabric. In retrospect the only thing I would have done different is make it bigger. It's 55' x 55" so kind of on the small side...oh well. I am happy with it otherwise. Thanks for looking :-)

    This was a lovely choice. Baskets would have been a theme during Civil War times so it looks authentic.

    I really like what you did and made it your own.

    Lovely, delightful...I have a similar quilt made from scraps hanging in my living room...so glad you could make the fabric into your own quilt!

    I love the way it is set with the double sashing and the "points" framing it. Great job.

    Your choice to wait and use the fabric for this quilt was spot on! I love it. You did a great job.
