How to Make a Basket Quilt

Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting | 1600 Series | Episode 1601

In this quilting video tutorial, Marianne and Mary Fons teach how to make a traditional quilting favorite—the basket quilt. They show how to make basket quilt blocks using the triangle trimmers tool and how to bias cut symmetrical basket handles.  They also explain how to use hand and machine appliqué on patchwork. Now that you have mastered basket quilts, look at Pinwheel Baskets, a fat quarter friendly project.
