Basket Quilt Block Cutting InstructionsThis 6" basket quilt block was used for a swap in our Quilting Forum. Follow the fabric guidelines or change them entirely to create a different look.
Quilting FabricsChoose a bright background fabric and a white and black printed fabric for your first basket block.
- Largest triangle for block top and basket: Cut a 5-3/8" square from each fabric; cut each in half once diagonally
- Triangle for bottom corner of block: Cut a 3-7/8" square from the bright background fabric; cut in half once diagonally
- Basket base: Cut a 2-3/8" square from the black/white basket fabric; cut in half once diagonally
- Background sides: Cut two 2" x 3-1/2" rectangles from the bright background fabric
Extra triangles can be used for a second block.
