Bill's Baskets Finished


This quilt had languished in the flimsy stage for a very long time. Storing flimsies takes much less space than storing finished quilts. I only have two beds. And my kids only have three or four beds. So I store flimsies until a need is revealed and then I have the quilting done and do the binding and off it goes.

Bill's Baskets is a very special quilt. I loved making it. I took my time and was meticulous with it. And a month or so ago I realized whose it is to be.

It will be gifted on Friday. I can't wait.

It's funny how quilts tell you who they want to live with.
