5 minute Block Quilt #69


                    A few months ago we 
ran a class using the 
5 minute Block 

this pattern is the 
"Basket of Love" 

Today we are looking at Wendy's 
take on the pattern 
I think that this has turned
just Terrific as Wendy is 
very much new to the 
world of patch working :) 

she used a Moda Layer cake 
called " Spring House"
for her fabric and plain white 
Emma Louise quilters Muslin 
   for the background

Now as this is a wall hanging 
Wendy wanted it to be 
firm...So heavy quilting 
it was so it has some body to it 
and hangs nicely 

so we used white cotton and used 
several quilting designs 

first we used a pebble type 
quilting for the border and 
then we used a micro stipple for around the 
basket and flowers 

I then used stitch in the ditch to 
go around the inner border 
and stippled the outer border 
and for the basket I stitched in 
the ditch for finish it off 

as you can see from the picture 
below it has turned out 
fabulous and Wendy Just loved it 

well i better get a shuffle on 
and get onto the next quilt 

Happy Quilting ") N
