I had time last night to work on getting some of the rows made on the basket weave quilt. I decided to make the rows and sew them together as I get them made instead of making all the rows and then sewing them together. Here’s what I have so far.
I have almost half of the rows completed. Depending on what size I make the borders, it will end up being approximately 100″ square.
I’m also playing around with a piece if Florida fabric. Not to sure about this…….not exactly coming out like I planned, but we’ll see.
That’s it for what I have on my wall this week. To see other design walls go to http://www.patchworktimes.com
Hopefully tonight I can work more on my rows, for now I have to get back to customer quilts. Have a good day!

I love things scrappy and stringy and I LOVE your basket weave; setting it on point makes it just sophisticated.
Thank you Kat! I am loving the way it’s turning out. I saw this quilt made on Bonnie Hunters site. I don’t know what size blocks she made, I made mine 6 12″ and figured up what I needed to make it fit my bed. It’s a great quilt to use up strips.
Good idea!…assembling the blocks as you finish them. For me , that’s the dreaded part of making a quilt…sewing the rows together.
That is going to be a great looking quilt! The dark setting triangles are perfect for framing those scrappy string blocks.
