This is Carolyn's "Baskets all Around" quilt. Not quite sure where they came up with the name, but I really liked the blocks in this one. Lots of room to play!
As you can see, I had fun with lots of quilting motifs. Below are a couple of close-ups so you can see what I did more clearly. The first shows more of an overall, with feathers, back and forth lines and loops, curved cross-hatch, and some linework in the sort of Dresden Plate area.

The backing of this quilt was a beautiful green fabric and some of the quilting on the top was in pink. The pink actually showed up quite well on the back, but I used a taupe in the bobbin with the variegated thread, so its a bit harder to see. You can almost see how I duplicated the quilting in the border and the "sashing squares."

Dorothy, Dort and more recently, Dory. Yes, three names. I was called Dort when I was little (much better than Dot) and now its morphed into Dory. That's the problem with a name like "Dorothy." What do you do with it?? (For the rest of this thrilling saga, click on "About Me" at the top of the blog.)
I'd love to hear from you! crazyhorsequilting [@] gmail [.]com
