    Sooo over this one.

    Still trying to post pics. This is the quilt in a day that turned out to be a quilt in over a year. I finally gave up and finished it with some empty baskets. I love to applique but this was so boring. I almost trashed it.Name:  Basket Quilt 003 (640x480).jpg

    Joy it is a lovely quilt so glad you didn't trash it. I really like the empty baskets they add interest to the quilt. Love it

    It is so pretty. I can see such a long project that you felt like quitting. I am glad you didn't. Next time, maybe a wallhanging first to see if you like doing it.

    Your quilt turned out very pretty. I agree that the empty baskets add interest. I, too, am learning to applique. I have a small project going. If I don't want to be done in a hurry I can deal.

    You may have gotten tired of it but the eventual results are beautiful and you deserve a big pat on the back for completing it. Put it away for a few months and then get it out---I will look better to you, I guarantee it!

    This turned out so pretty. I really do like it. And there is nothing wrong with the empty baskets I don't think.

    I had the same problem...took a class for the quilt but only made nine baskets. Ended up making a wall hanging for a gift, couldn't get it out of my hands fast enough!

    Beautiful quilt!

    It feels so good to finish some quilts. I had one that I thought would never end.

    Your quilt top is beautiful and I think worth all the time you put into it! I also like some of the baskets empty. Just think, you can add more flowers anytime you feel like it.
