Basket Case…the details

This quilt is made from one jelly roll, plus cream yardage and borders.  I wanted a woven look for each block without cutting the strips all into little squares with lots of little seams….so it took  a full night of staring at my silly drawings to figure out how to properly do it and make it simple.
The fabric line is Bliss by Bonnie and Camille for Moda.
The back is the lovely aqua medallions.
and the binding is scrappy using the leftover jelly roll strips.
The quilt measures 61″ x 71″ .  The pattern is suitable for a beginning quilter with some piecing and seam matching skills.  And it’s so fun to make!

    I live under a rock and even I've heard of bliss!

    Oh, so beautiful, you did a wonderful job. I am lusting after the bliss though.

    Wow this is incredible! I am starting to seriously think of projects to work on now that our house is basically done!! (read doing cartwheels and throwing kisses to the crowd!!!) LOL

    What do you recommend for a beginning sewer with 20 years experience? Yeah, I've been doing straight stitches for that long and still can't quite get the hang of it… hmm maybe if I ever read directions. Nah! :) Any skirts ideas for one who is thick in the hips and middle? Think curvy pear.. :)

    Well… as we've seen before… I DO live under a rock… but that is a GORGEOUS quilt!! I would love to know how you did that without sewing 92837596340923098 pieces together! :-P

    Love this pattern. And I'm feeling very Blissful. Oh, and I already have the jelly roll. Woot! Going to get the pattern…

    You do not indicate how much yardage is needed for the backing.

    I love this pattern! And you should try the chocolate covered acai berries! Those are my favorite…with the blueberries close behind.

    Even though I don't have the skills to put a quilt like that together, I'm tempted to buy the pattern just to see how you figured out how to do it.

    Beautiful quilt in a beautiful setting. My Bliss JR is slated for something else already but MAN, this is just gorgeous! I'll bet it looks good in any line of fabric though.

    Love the pattern, love Bliss. Target has the perfect color aqua sheets to match. Don't ask me how I know that….I may have a few…

    Gorgeous work, I love it!

  23. Stephanie Zito October 14, 2010 at 4:24 am #

    Wow! Gorgeous. I'm thinking I may need to pick up a Bliss Jelly Roll and then I'll be back for your pattern!

  24. Mystica October 14, 2010 at 4:37 am #

    I dont think I could do such accurate piecing. You need to get the accuracy right to get this so gloriously well put together. Fabulous selection of colors as well.

  25. Jodi October 14, 2010 at 6:26 am #

    Ha! Sometimes I think I DO live under a rock and can't crawl out! Beautiful design!

  26. Wanesia October 14, 2010 at 7:11 am #

  30. randi---i have to say October 14, 2010 at 1:02 pm #

    very nice!

    you gotta watch out for those sample ladies lookin' all innocent and such, especially when chocolate is involved!

  31. ohiostar5 October 14, 2010 at 1:08 pm #

    This quilt is a winner! Can't wait until the pattern comes out. BettyLou

  32. Alexis October 14, 2010 at 2:42 pm #

    Great pattern & quilt! It's beautiful!

  33. di October 14, 2010 at 2:53 pm #

    This is so beautiful! I am pretty new to quilting and I love using the pre-cuts. I am going to have to put this on my wish-list! Oh, and I know what you mean about those Costco sample ladies….well, just Costco in general! I walked out of there with a huge jar of a snack mix the other day that I had to buy, just because it looked yummy. lol

  34. sariah October 14, 2010 at 3:08 pm #

    How funny, I worked on a baby quilt all day yesterday and didn't stop for lunch because I was snacking on the chocolate covered pomegranates from Costco. They're so yummy but I think I'm a little sick of them now.
    Your quilt is amazing!! I love Bliss. I am trying to decide what to do with my Bliss charm pack that's sitting here.

  35. Cheryl October 14, 2010 at 4:00 pm #

    Just ordered your pattern!! I have the jelly roll for Bliss and have been looking for the perfect pattern….here it is!!!!

  36. Summer :) October 14, 2010 at 6:37 pm #

    Really cute! :) Might have to order it one of these days! :)

  37. Camille October 14, 2010 at 11:31 pm #

    Oh my goodness, I LOVE this! Love it!

  38. DiddleDaddleDesigns October 15, 2010 at 1:25 am #

    This is gorgeous. Your fabric selections are fantastic.

  39. Kelli October 15, 2010 at 3:19 pm #

    Love, love, love it! I'm on a fabric buying ban I set for myself right now and not getting some bliss is killing me! I just need to get busy sewing and using up some stash so I can free myself to indulge… And your pattern just shows it off so well! I really love how intricate this looks! It's going on the wish list, now who can I convince to buy it for me…

  40. roundnround October 16, 2010 at 4:58 am #

    So, can we look forward to a tutorial in the very near future on how your weaved this without all the little squares???

  41. ThirdMargaret October 19, 2010 at 1:41 am #

    This quilt just about took my breath away! I love everything about it!

  42. Melanie October 20, 2010 at 2:17 am #

    This is so beautiful! I can't wait for my Bliss JR to arrive. I know my quilt won't be as lovely as yours though…

  43. mandiegirl October 20, 2010 at 1:40 pm #

    This is lovely! Wowza! ;)

  44. Michelle October 23, 2010 at 6:11 pm #

    I just bought this and the Modern Chain quilt!
    I plan to use up my carolers jelly roll for Basket case for Christmas this year, and am going to give some scrappy love the the Modern Chain :)

    Hi, I began this pattern and can’t figure out what we are supposed to do with the 4.5″ strip block that was step #4. Directions were to set it aside but I can’t see in the directions any mention of that block again.
