Little Baskets...

I started putting the blocks together, but I didn't like them set as they are in the book..
They look so lovely in the book, a gorgeous little quilt...but for some reason I don't like mine set like that. I just cannot get my head around the baskets being on their side ...what do you think!
Perhaps the quilt as a whole would make all the difference...isn't the applique border lovely!
So I unpicked them and here they are the same way up, for me to ponder on....
I'm off out again this morning with the Wednesday embroidery girls, I'll have another look at this later on.
Have a nice day...♥

  1. I like them better facing up rather than on their sides. The picture in the book looked fine until I really looked at the baskets that were sideways and then I didn't like how that picture looked.

  7. Most definitely look better your way, I can't come to terms with things on their sides at all. Looking great Julia.

  9. I agree with everyone else. They do look better all facing the same way. The quilt is going to look just beautiful.

  12. This is such a great conversation piece. One day after quilting Saturday a bunch of us sat around a table in the coffee shop and contemplated right way/wrong way. If it is a wall hanging, I am with you that all should be upright. It is is a table topper, then when I sit and look, I would like the basket to be the right way for where I am sitting. So it is all a matter of point of view. Love it anyway it is beautiful.

  15. I'm with you Julia, I like them better facing up. I always like 30's when someone else is using them. They make bright happy quilts.

  18. I like them right way up for a little quilt. They get a bit lost the other way. The border is beautiful and I can't wait to see it finished. It's a gorgeous little quilt!

  19. my first thought when I saw the picture was, "I wonder why she set them on their side?" Then, I read on. I like them right side up, myself! So pretty!

  21. I'd leave them right side up too. Looks like someone knocked them over or didn't lay them right in the picture.

  22. I agree, the baskets look better going in the same direction.

  23. Love your little basket quilt, and the applique border is just darling. I can handle the baskets being on the side, but the way you have them set is so pretty as well. I think you have to go with what speaks to you!

  24. I agree with you, right sides up. I just love the fabrics you are using and the border will be stunning.

  25. First, this is *adorable*, I LOVE it. If a wall hanging I like them all right sides up. If a table topper then I would consider placing them with the tops all pointing inward so the basket nearest the viewer would be right side up toward him or her. Does that make sense? Either way, it's so cute...and I think some 30's fabrics and a little basket pattern are calling my name.

  26. I like yours so much better right side up Julia... everything will fall out of the baskets if they're on their sides! I don't think I've ever seen a quilt with the baskets sideways before! I'm sure you will come up with something gorgeous, and I do like that border too. xx

  27. the little 30's fabric baskets are so cute. I don't mind the baskets on their side but whatever makes you happy, go with it. The applique border will make this quilt very special.
