Well a new project is waiting. I'm thinking about making a kind of "medaillon" quilt, with the basket in the middle, and some borders around it. Maybe put the blue basket in my antique orphan quilt. And of course all will be handquilted.
The brown block is a 9 inch square, dating: circa 1840-60. It's all hand stitched. It's incredible if you look at the condition of this 150 years old block of early american stitchery. The blue block I would date about 1880-1900, I think the basket is made of a men's shirt. It's also very cute and in great condition.
