Nana's Garden Basket Quilt Progress

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!

Earlier this summer, Millie picked out this fabric line, Nana's Garden by Red Rooster Fabrics, for a new quilt for her bunkbed as part of redecorating her room to be more old-fashioned.  I posted about that HERE.  She chose the Barbie's Basket pattern found in the book, Cutting Corners.  About a month after I bought the fabric, and the day I began cutting the pieces, she humbly told me she wasn't sure it was her favorite anymore; it didn't seem bright enough!  I went ahead and continued cutting and sewing anyway; telling her she could decide when it was all done, and if she still didn't like it, it could find a place in my Etsy shop, so no worries there, sweetie!

Today I finished the basket blocks and put it up on my design wall.  It is even sweeter than the picture portrays!  After assembling the quilt center, I'll add a thin green border and another wider pink floral border to bring it to twin size.  And ... Millie thinks it is beautiful!!

Picket Fence in Spring, a quilt in very similar colors, just sold in my Etsy shop!
