Easter Baskets

While looking for Easter quilts this week, I found a wonderful spring-like version of Quiltmaker’s Flip Flop Baskets from the March/April ’10 issue.

Stephanie Hinsvark's Easter version of Flip Flop Baskets from Quiltmaker's March/April '10 issue

This quilt was made by Stephanie Hinsvark from Hillsboro, Oregon. I really like the addition of the Easter eggs in the border. Aren’t they fun?

And Stephanie’s quilting adds so much texture to this design.

Flip Flop Baskets are part of the Flip Flops series from Quiltmaker. The instructions for this technique are given in the Jan/Feb ’10 issue. In each subsequent issue during 2010, another Flip Flop design was given.

    I am the current preisdent of my local quilt guild.I was elected the same way the first example you mentioned. Guilt!It is not a glamourous position but I am a spunky person and we have a great time. I keep the meeting part as short as possible. Sometimes we need to re-open the meeting for a last minute vote on something. My Recording Secretary is a most skillful lady in getting it all in writing for the next meeting. Even the out takes and we have a good laugh!We welcome new members with open arms. There is a very large guild in the very close next town. It is VERY large and very stiff. Not a friendly guild. SO competitive and too many rules.I LOVE scrap quilts and have nearly every book on that subject!I keep my fabrics using Bonnie Hunter’s Scrap USER System. It works for me!

    The Easter flip-flop quilt is darling! I’ve been wanting to make an Easter quilt and I think this version will be it.
