Bygone Baskets twin

I finished getting the Bygone Baskets quilt put together.  It looks very nice and concise.



I wonder if it needs a border or if a solid colored binding will be enough.




I got online because I thought surely someone else has finished their BOM and posted picutres.  I found the photo below and laughed as I thought, "We had the same idea!"

She made the quilt in different colors, of course, but she made an extra block (like I did) and put it on point (like I did).  Isn't the blue sashing pretty.  It's so fun to see it made up in different fabrics.





My hibiscus has bloomed.  I can see it from my backdoor.  Wasn't it nice that the first bloom  was pointed toward the door so I wouldn't miss it?




I bottled a batch of green beans today.  I spend over an hour just snipping off the ends.  But, I have 7 hearty quarts to put in the fruit room.  Well worth the effort.

Your baskets look so good on point like that and I adore the striped sashing. Totally worthwhile to go the extra mile and make another block! Can't wait to see how you finish this up. I'm a border person so that's how I would probably go, but not every quilt needs a border, that's for sure. With quilting texture, this will look amazing regardless of what you do!

It is simply stunning!

The stripe sashing really makes the quilt at least in my opinion. You inspired me to purchase the pattern and I received it yesterday. I am afraid it will probably just end up in my some day pile of patterns but at least I have it.

I just love looking at this basket quilt! Good work, Robin!!
That is such a pretty hibiscus. I have a friend whose husband grows them, but he has them in huge pots and brings them in over the winter. Does yours survive winter pretty well, or do you have to protect it?

Your quilt looks beautiful, Robin! I didn't realize how large the baskets are from your other photos. They look like the 13 make a good size quilt.
That's a great spot to plant a hibiscus and it was thoughtful of the plant to bloom facing your door. What a fun morning greeting.

Have a happy Saturday

 I have been trying to use up scraps.   Usually I find some fabric I really can't live without 😏 and plan a project around it.  Well, I...
