How to Make the Basket Quilt Block

If you are looking for a traditional basket quilt block then this tutorial is for you.  This traditional block is not as hard to assemble as it looks and Adventures of a DIY Mom helps guide you through the entire process.

This block would be a good one to show off one or more of your favorite fabrics.  It is also a great way to show off your half square triangle making skills.

To make it you need standard quilt making supplies.  The author has also provided a handy chart showing you the cutting needed to make four different sizes of the block.  I love that chart.

You will also find step by step instructions  (along with detailed photos) to make make one block.

Wouldn’t this be pretty incorporated into a scrap quilt?  You could use the same background fabric and change up the baskets in each one.  Or maybe make the larger triangle a different color than the smaller ones.
