Antique Basket Quilt

I saw this sweet basket quilt at La Conner Quilt and Textile Museum in WA. The quilts are exhibited in the 1891 Gaches Victorian Mansion, which is the perfect backdrop for antique textiles. This quilt was draped over a table on the third floor – it made the climb worth the effort. This one’s on my ‘To Do’ list!

I love it! The baskets are adorable, but I think it's the green that captures my fancy.

another great antique quilt.
I love the different size baskets and the circles, at first I thought they were buttons , the green is wonderful and then the pink border perfect!
I can see why you would want to reproduce this quilt, its beautiful

The basket quilt seems unusual to me but I do love it. The green setting is wonderful.
