description
I found this vintage, hand-pieced, 1930’s pink basket block for $6 at an antique shop, The Rusty Rooster, during a teaching/lecture engagement for The Washington Stars Quilt Guild in Olympia, Washington in May 2010. Scheduled to lead a quilting retreat at the Thunder Bay Resort in Hillman, Michigan in June, I brought the block with me and with some support from my fellow retreaters (and in traditional quilt-making style), we managed to design and quilt this new block from the old. See photos from the retreat.
