You've probably seen this stunning quilt from the Chicago Quilt Show on other blogs. I took close-ups of the baskets (two baskets per picture). I'm going to post these pictures in order (one basket set each post) starting in the upper right corner. I've seen some comments on reproducing this quilt, so I thought the basket detail might be useful. So, here's the first installment. Happy May Day!
The Lightning quilt is ready for assembly. I've hit a dilemma. I added two rows to make the quilt 82" square (as pictured below). I'm now thinking of adding only one row so lengthwise borders are symmetrical - width approximately 75". The book quilt has asymmetrical side borders - one edge pieced pyramids, one edge solid pyramids. Decisions, decisions!
