Basket Top

This is the next project I need to finish. 37 blocks done. I want to make 5 more blocks and then add a sawtooth border. Today I cut out the additional blocks and ironed the HST for the border. I don't usually like baskets that aren't standing upright but these I thought looked okay on their sides in a straight set. They just didn't look right when I lay them out in a diagonal set.

I love this!!! It's an everyday quilt or Valentines, or Christmas, or Independence day-- what a keeper.

Lizzy, what pattern did you use? Or did you make up one of your own? I love it! (I have a scrappy basket quilt on my list of projects to be done in the next 4-6 months,or sooner if I discover the perfect design idea)
