a chicopee basket case

 Another Basket Case quilt from the pattern by Cluck Cluck Sew.  This one by request.  


There is a bit of each print from Denyse Schmidt's Chicopee line.  I tried to not use all perfect matches in each block.  But, if you ask me, they all go together perfectly.


I used Kona Ash for the background in a few of the blocks.


I quilted each square with a geometric design.  You can see it better on the (un-
pressed) back.  


I used Quilter's Dream (select loft) cotton batting.  It drapes beautifully - even before washing.
Can you see the argyle print on the binding?  Love it!


Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts Finish It Up Friday.
Have a great weekend!

  5. Karen, I love you quilt. I can't believe that you found this wagon, painted in those colors!! You really have an amazing artistic eye which shows in your fabric selections, your thoughtful pattern layouts, and your finished product presentations. I always look forward to each new quilt. If you had to wait for one from me, you'd be waiting years!!!! You are the "speedy quilt" chick!! Speaking of chicks, thanks for hosting us for a really fun and informative program today. Love, J

  7. I love your quilt the pattern and the fabric choices are beautiful together. Did you do the quilting on a domestic or a long arm? I do mine on a domestic and wondered if this pattern is doable that way.

    1. Hi Patty. This is free motion quilted on a longarm. You could certainly do this on a domestic machine. In fact, I think it is a great pattern because it goes back and forth (or top to bottom then bottom to top.) I would be happy to share more info regarding how I moved through the pattern and a better photo of the quilting if you want to email me. runsewfun(at)gmail(dot)com. Thanks for stopping by.
