Basket Quilt

Here is the large basket quilt, pieced by Betty Ann.  I love quilting these 30's fabrics - so cheerful. 
The inner white border was the perfect place to quilt a feather.   
 The outer border was quilted with lines - it frames the quilt.  Also, the fabric is busy so you don't need anything fancy.  After I posted these pictures, I noticed the yellow border needed quilting.  It's only 1-1/2 inches wide, so I put a little ribbon on it.  It just needed a little something.   

 I quilted a small leaf and loop in the sashing between rows. 
 There's a butterfly in there somewhere...
