Flower Basket Quilt by Ruby Short McKim!
Eighty years ago Ruby Short McKim designed this block of the month and it was distributed in newspapers across the midwest. Now her granddaughter has reworked the patterns for modern day quilters! You choose how you want to do your flowers - applique by hand or machine, embroidery with crayons or not or wool applique! All will make a gorgeous 87" x 90" quilt! We'll provide the fabrics for the background - a pretty blue batik, the basket - a printed basket weave fabric a little darker than our samples - and a coordinating tone on tone for the basket contrast. You'll choose your flower method and we'll provide the fabric, the floss or the wool. Click here for a link to more details.
