Finished Fall Basket Case


I was so happy to get this quilt finished up in time to use through the fall.  I sent this one to Kathy to be quilted and without any direction from me she did these amazing rows of loopty loops every 2 1/2”….it adds so much to this quilt.

Here’s a better look at Kathy’s quilting.  For some reason I bought almost a whole bolt of this Bella solid blue fabric a long time ago…luckily it makes a nice backing because I think I’ve backed 5 quilts with it now!




The pattern is Basket Case…you can find the pattern here.  
I’m off to brave Joann’s for Halloween costume materials…wish me luck.  ;)

    You have impeccable taste/style when it comes to colors from your stash. I'm so envious of that skill! Anyway, I just ordered the PDF pattern and am headed home to bust my own stash with this yummy quilt!

    It looks great! Your fabric choices & patterns are always so perfect, as is Kathy's quilting. I've got a nice bundle of Wallflowers & may use some of it for a sampler quilt along.

  17. Carla October 17, 2013 at 1:24 am #

    It looks great! The quilting is so fun!

    It looks great! I have this pattern, one of 5. I need to gwt busy and make one. I did get a fat quarter bundle of Wallflowers and it is so, so, pretty! I am going to make either Spin Cycle or Seville, both patterns I have! It wont be until spring because we are moving and winter is coming and my 20 hens will need watching. Thank you Allison!!

    Love the color combination of this quilt. I also love that large white wreath above your bed. What is that made of?

  22. Susie October 17, 2013 at 5:12 am #

    Great colours love the design too.

  23. Margot Rylah October 17, 2013 at 5:12 am #

    Alison .. I probably sound like a cracked record, but … I LOVE all your work. Crisp, fresh colours, simple patterns: so very special in every way.
    This is coming from a frustrated quilter who dreams of getting back to her machine "one day!" Will love making up some of your quilts for our grandchildren .. 2 of whom live in Seattle.
    I find just LOOKING at your designs is refreshing!!

  24. margaret October 17, 2013 at 5:13 am #

    beautifully pieced and beautifully quilted

  25. Dawn October 17, 2013 at 5:53 am #

    Love that pattern. I might have to break down and buy it. And ditto on the white wreath! DIY or did u buy it?

  26. excuseme23 October 17, 2013 at 6:52 am #

    Great effect from such a simple arrangement, love it.

  27. Chris October 17, 2013 at 12:33 pm #

    This quilt really jumped off the page for me this morning….the colors/prints are really pleasing to the eye. Can I ask what it might generally cost to send out a quilt to have it quilted? Thanks!

    I love this pattern! I made a quilt with this pattern using Happy Go Lucky and I love it . The quilt is now hanging in our quilt shop as a sample. I want to make this pattern again in Christmas colors. It says a great deal when a quilter is willing to use a pattern mope than once

    The quilt is beautiful. I love the colors and the design. Beautiful, Beautiful.

    Hello Allison I found you in the new Patching and Quilting magazine which I bought yesterday. Your blog is just fabulous and I hope you don't mind but I have put you as one of my favourites on my own blog. I am very new to sewing and crochet and started a blog in May to encourage me to do more. Blogland is such a wonderful place with so many inspirational and creative people like yourself. My sewing is coming along quietly but my long term goal is to make a quilt – it is a long time off yet but your wonderful blog will help me on my way. Have a wonderful weekend, lots of love
