Old-Fashioned Pieced Basket Quilt

Someone from my church gave our quilt group a quilt top they had purchased at a rummage sale. So our quilt group leader, Judy bought some matching fabric for the backing and she also picked up some batting. I took the quilt to the senior center where they have two longarm quilting machines that are available for use at no charge. I loaded the quilt on one of the longarms and quilted it. This quilt is king size so it took me quite a while to complete the quilting. Judy will get some fabric for the binding and finish up the quilt so we can use it at the church's craft fair that is coming up in March. Hopefully we can raffle it off and make a nice amount of money for the church in the process. I never quilted anything this large, it was quite a challenge for me. So glad to have it done with plenty of time to spare.
