Hand appliqued, hand pieced and hand quilted. There are some lovely toile fabrics and chinz.Reproduction fabrics on muslin background. No pattern, but see QNM#377 November 2005 for some blocks which QNM had drawn.
Pattern for the English Basket Quilt. This is Corliss Searcey’s interpretation of the English Medallion Quilt from the early 1800s. These naive baskets are surrounded by borders of hexagon flowers, stars, hearts and more.
