Basket Case in Dixie

Basket Case Quilt

I love these holiday weeks when Wednesday feels like a Tuesday and we are that much closer to the weekend!

 I’ve had the itch to remake this quilt for a while now, so the release of Dixie (which comes out in July for those that have asked!) gave me a perfect excuse, and the saturated colors “pop” perfectly against the white.  

Basket Case Quilt

This was one of my early patterns and is still one of my favorites to watch come together into the “woven” looking pattern.  The pattern is Basket Case, and this is a throw size 60″ x 70″.  I quilted this one with my Juki in a simple meandering pattern, also known as stippling, but I’m not sure which is correct.  Maybe both?

Have a great rest of your Tuesday….I mean Wednesday!  

PS.  The winner of the Scraps Inc. Volume 2 book from my last post is Liz (I emailed you!) who has a scrap of Zebra fabric she’s hoarding.  I loved loved loved reading about all your precious scraps…and I think I have a lot of the same in my bin(s)!

    Thank you for sharing this!! I have this pattern of yours, and a jelly roll of Wildflowers (as well as some yardage of the fabric, because it is too gorgeous!). I was thinking of using my Wildflowers for making basket case. Any thoughts? Advice? Thanks for all your inspiration!

    I’ve made this pattern twice now. Funny, the first time I had to refer to the pattern for every single block. My grown daughters argued over who would get it and ultimately drew straws. (Only time that’s happened.) The second quilt I never even had to look at the pattern. I was offered $ for it before it was even finished but it was being made for a woman needing comfort. Hopefully it has provided some.

    This is a great quilt! I believe the only difference between meandering and stippling is the size of the pattern, stippling being a much smaller/finer pattern. Candy
