A Tisket, a Tasket...a finished JANE Basket

Well, another one for the completed list. I couldn't be much happier tonight! I cut the handle on the bias, so instead of matching the directional pattern for the bottom layer, I reversed it. If it bothers me, it will end up on the re-do list but it looks pretty good up close.

The pattern had very little space at the bottom of the block and this big empty background space at the top...to keep the eye moving, I moved it up just a bit (1/4 inch or so) and think that the block looks more centered. It works for me.  Have a wonderful week & cheers to finished blocks!

Happy Quilting!!


  1. Thats so cute! Just in time for Easter! Unless its a gardening basket!

  2. I love the soft green, the whole block looks good to me, I like it.

  3. Hey, another 30s fan, how cool! :-)
    Ever since I saw the Dear Jane Quilt, I was wondering how it would look in 30s fabrics. And you are doing it! That´s great and it looks fantastic!

  4. Jenn,
    We won't have to get our gardening baskets out any day soon...we still have some snow on the ground! I'll be watching your early progress on the blog and waiting patiently for our short season.
    All my best! Heather
