Blue Baskets

For the latest quilt top for Project Linus, I chose “Blueberry Baskets” from Basket Bonanza by Nancy Mahoney.

The cutting instructions called for each block to use the same blues and yellow fabrics. But I chose different yellows and blues for each block.

For the border, I happened to have a fair amount of a blue-and-yellow floral print in my stash. Someone was giving it away several years ago. She had already used it to make something — I don’t know what exactly, except it was round. But the pieces were a good size, and I was able to cut my borders without having to sew together smaller cuts.

The background color has a green tint to it. I would have preferred something more white, but I think it works well enough.
