Overview

Who would have thought the humble basket could have so many exciting variations? Patterns for a dozen different blocks, plus an array of striking layouts, are at hand in this easy-to-follow how-to guide by veteran quilting instructor and designer Sharon Cerny Ogden. You'll find simple instructions, diagrams, and time-saving quick-cutting methods that will help you piece together your own heirloom-quality basket quilt in a fraction of the time it ordinarily takes to assemble a quilt top.
Motifs include the traditional Cake Stand and its 5-patch relations, the Grape Basket and Fruit Basket; patterns with a touch of applique such as Grandmother's Basket and Basket of Flowers; three kinds of Flower Pots; plus four more attractive patterns. In addition to complete instructions for each block, the author provides you with a wealth of helpful advice about adapting a design to different sizes, instructions for quick-cutting and piecing right triangles, and handy cutting charts for each of the basket blocks.
Whether you're a novice or an expert, this excellent, practical guide will be an inspiring addition to your personal library.
