Basketweave Quilts for Mayan Families

Kathy Loomis donated these tops for the Mayan Families project.  I quilted them, and some local quilters completed the binding. Here's an example of how choice of fabrics affects the outcome of a design.  These two tops are both made from the same block.  It's just a large rectangle with a narrow strip on each side.  Then the blocks are rotated, one horizontal, next one vertical.  One quilt came out calm, sweet, and vintage-looking.  The other is a jazzy, more modern rendition.  Kathy is a great blogger with interesting perspectives on quilting.  She's also an accomplished photographer.  Check out her blog, Art With A Needle.
