antique makeover revisited PA style
This block is the 2nd time I have borrowed the basket border design from my antique princess feather quilt. See my prior post for my first quilt using this basket design.
Here are the 6 challenge fabrics plus my 2 optional fabrics. I picked the double pink and the yellow/ gold (close to a cheddar).
I think I've been influenced by 19th century Pennsylvania German quilts. I'd venture to say, I was a bit directed by the quilt that I've been studying recently. It is a dated 1842, signature presentation quilt from Easton, PA.
