A Tisket A Tasket Quilt

I finally finished the quilting!  I had fun doing the fill in around the applique in each of the blocks.  I did a stitch in the ditch around the appliques first.
Then I continued by stitching the sashing with a variegated blue thread.  The fabric has a bit of shading in it, and I wanted it to blend in, but show a bit....
I finished by doing feathered hooks in the background of the final border.  I also added a small feathered wreath in each of the corners, and finished by adding a yellow button to each of the bows.  I wanted to continue the embellishment of buttons that was in most of the blocks.

Now all I need to do is take a final picture of the whole quilt, as soon as one of my photo assistants arrives home!


  1. Your quilting is beautiful! I'll be looking for the picture of the whole quilt. I bet it is a show stopper.

  2. oh I love how you quilted yours. L-u-v the background block filler! beautiful. Makes me want to drop everything and concentrate completely on my blocks...but I can't. They'll be done soon enough anyway!
    thanks for sharing, can't wait to see a whole quilt picture!


Thank you. Your comments are important to me.
