tisket a tasket

This is my progress to date on a block of the month I worked on all last year.  The title is Tisket a Tasket, designed by Ann Wanke and published by The Quilted Basket.  The colors in the photo are a little pale.  the prints ins the design are 30s reproductions.  The remaining step is a keyboard border of the 4 solids with the prints (the solids are the "black keys" and the prints are the white keys).  This time I know where my backing is, so I should be able to finish this up in the next couple of weeks and get it to the long arm quilter.  I do love the 30s prints, and I need to get back to putting together my grandmother's flower garden!


  1. I made this same quilt at the LQS BOM. I am at the same place you are. I did a few changes on mine because I am not a fan of yellow. I changed the yellow to peach but then didn't like pink with it and used yellow in place of the pink. It was fun, wasn't it? Great job. Can't wait to see your finish.

  2. thanks for the comments! I'd love to see your version with the different colors. I worry that the keyboard border will be a little tedious to put together. I've tried to somewhat match the color variation shown in pictures with the kit, but I'm not sure I got exactly the same prints as are in the picture. There were some glitches in the directions, imho.

  3. That's beautiful. What a wonderful sampler pattern that is. It pulls together very well. Your thirties prints seem the perfect choice for this.
