2016 Finished Quilts - 40's Basket Quilt - Quilt 2

This one is kinda a duplicate of posts, as I have posted about the process of finishing this one awhile back.  This one is one of my favorites, as it looks classic and fresh at the same time.  Right now it spends it's life on my mom's bed.

Each basket is a different pattern, making the quilt a sampler quilt.  I tend to lean towards the samplers.  I like making different block patterns.  I have a tendency to get bored if I have to make the same block over and over again.

I have not done a solid background before, and since doing it for this quilt back in January, I find I really like it for this quilt.  Not sure if I would do it again on other quilts, but for now, I am happy with this quilt and it's backing.

Next are the specific facts about the quilt:
