Texture: Basket Weave

First, I apologize for this post being so late.  Some of you know that I had a computer issue a few weeks ago and it seemed that Microsoft struck again.  But I am up and running and still resisting replacing my Win 7 desk top.

When I read the theme for this quarter was texture, I pretty much knew what I wanted to try.  I wanted to use fabric to create a basket weave effect. The squares are 4 inches and the black is just 1/4 inch.

I don't think it turned out too bad.  It looks a little wonky, but wonky is trending right now, isn't it?  Or maybe just in stars.

I'll be posting about this piece on my blog:


  1. You've created a very nice basket weave effect with this, Carol. I think wonky is always in fashion :)

  2. Fantastic interpretation of the theme Carol. I like that it is wonky, I think it reflects more the natural lines of a woven basket.

  3. I like the graphic look of it, and wonky is alway good, in my book!

  4. I like the idea of using fabric to represent a texture rather than using texture itself. Love the black 'shadows' adding dimension to the woven strips.

  5. The quilt is delightful. You did a wonderful job on the theme, and basket weave is definitely textural.
