Basket quilts, like today’s FREE quilt pattern, make wonderful one-of-a-kind gifts and keepsakes that are sure to be treasured and admired, especially as the seasons change. For many quilters, basket quilt patterns create a warm, springtime feeling.
This style of quilt dates back to the 18th century and is still among some of the best-loved quilt designs today, showcasing a clever layout. Their variety, versatility, and charm give them special appeal for quilters of all skill levels. Whether using one or two basket blocks in a small quilt project, or creating many basket quilt blocks as the main focus of a larger quilt, baskets perfectly exemplify the tradition of patchwork quilts and appliqué designs inspired by everyday household objects. The basket quilt is perfect for those quilters looking for a traditional quilt pattern with a fresh and new look.
