4 Seasons Quilt Swap

Well, the semester is coming to a close and I am finally coming up for air! I can't believe I haven't posted for over a month. I have been busy with little projects though. I just put the label on my little quilt for the 4 seasons quilt swap. The only hint I can give is that it has a bit of a journey before it gets to it's new owner & I sure hope she likes it. This little basket quilt is made from a pattern that I had from a 2006 copy of a Quilter's Newsletter Magazine's Scrap Quilting edition. The pattern is by Gwen Marston and is one that I have wanted to make for a long while. Gwen's version is subdued with mainly solid fabrics. Mine is a bit louder because I chose the floral for the background. honestly it turned out a bit louder than I intended! It is far from perfect and is the first time I've made basket blocks. They were fun but quite tedious with 19 pieces per block. My points definitely leave something to be desired!

I like it in the brighter colours - looks very spring-like.
