Aunt Bea's Parlor Baskets Quilt

Baskets quilt is all finished and hanging on the wall! The picture turned out lighter than I would have liked it to be, but can't get the baskets any better. Sorry about that--but you get the general idea! I do like the 1930's fabric and have one piece that is vintage--the real thing! It is from my MIL's collection that I got when she passed away several years ago. I like to try and use them when I get a chance. That pile is getting used up, but it's fun to know they are in different quilts!

Today I worked on another mystery quilt that I am doing from the LQS--I think we have 3 more installments of that. It's called Quilter's Double Cross. The fabrics are great!----Very much country looking, I guess you could say. Those blocks are shown in the second picture.

Also pulled the fabrics from my stash for the quilt called For The Love of Texas. It's a wall hanging size that has a lot of Texas things on it. I thought after living here 15 years, I should do a Texas quilt, so I chose this one!

We have been getting lots of rain and thunder storms today, so it was a good day to stay in and sew and quilt!!!

Let quilting help you make someone smile!

Gorgeous as usual Jan. I love the look of 30's repro quilts.
