Laundry Basket Quilt

This quilt is called a "Laundry Basket Quilt"... There is no pattern for this quilt, I made it my own... The stitchery in the middle says "Friendship Grows Within the Heart"... The quilt shop that I go to (Ye Olde Schoolhouse)  all the time had half square triangle on a roll with fabric to sew.. There were about 20 half square triangle with two fabric... Once I sewed it I returned them to the quilt shop... I kept on buying them every time I was in the shop... The staff would put the squares in a wash tub... When the program was done they would mix them up and give you back the same amount that I sewed... I ended up sewing 560 squares... This is what I came up with when I was done sewing them... I love the way it came out and the scrappy look... I finished it yesterday.... All I have to do is put a label on it... If you click on the picture you can get a better look at all the different fabrics I used... Hugs :)

Jean........I want one of those too.

I suppose I had better get busy making half square triangles.

What size are they finished?

Looks like a WONDERFUL leader ender project.
