Happy Easter!

In the spirit of spring and Easter, I was inspired to create a basket quilt!  The baskets are made fabric and then the background ended up being more pieced than was my original intent, but I like the variety!  This may be my 12 x 12 for the SFN challenge - haven't decided yet : )  I have some ideas for hand quilting in the solid areas which is exciting and different for me since my quilts rarely have plain areas in them!  Happy Easter to all!

Yes, Happy Easter, Nancy. I agree with Sandy - I don't normally like basket quilts but these are lovely and modern.
