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.
•The pattern for Cottage Baskets can be found Love of Quilting September/October 2010.
