The Vintage Pink Basket Quilt, Part 7

Remember how it all began? My eBay purchase that was remarkably advertised as a “quilt in good condition”?

If you’ve followed the blogs posts 1-6 about this quilt you’ll know I soaked and laundered, deconstructed/reconstructed/squared up/and embellished in my experiment to save this interesting and “appealing to me” quilt top.

Below you’ll see pictures of what the blocks looked like before I added lots of embellishments:

What’s up next? Here’s a picture of what I started yesterday:

Did you notice all the white flowers with the yellow centers? Again I shopped Amazon.

Thanks for staying with me through these 7 posts about this quilt, just a few more to go and hopefully I’ll be reporting about a finished quilt!

Blessings to all and happy quilting, Rhonda

  1. Always enjoy your projects. You can truly make something lovely out of nothing anyone would want! I heard you speak at our guild in New Braunfels, Texas and you inspired me to make a quilt from vintage linens I inherited from my grandmother and great grandmother. Thank you so much.

  2. Husband came up and asked what I was doing. I said, “You’re going to be sorry you asked!” He is more into farming, but he looked at each block as I pointed out details. He was impressed! And took he took pleasure in my delight. 🙂

  3. Those blocks! They are all a work of art! It is hard to choose a favorite, but the one where you added the lacey center with the folded up petals to the middle of the original flower to make it look like a poppy to me is outstanding. It gives the sense of breeze in the air. That butterfly, too, and those little blue flowers you embroidered along the top of the basket are sweet touches! Those vined blocks are favorites as well. How exciting to be this far along!

  4. This is amazing what determination and creativity can produce. Rhonda, you did a beautiful job of turning an ugly cocoon into a beautiful butterfly. Love your work!
