basket quilt with borders

Here is the finished basket quilt top. My very tall husband had to stand on a chair to get a picture :0) It measures 98 by 70 - a bit wider than I thought it would be (math is not one of my strengths) but better a bit big than too small.
So now I need to quilt it. It'll be pretty simple quilting - lots of straight lines so I can use my walking foot. Some hearts in the corners I think and maybe I'll quilt some flowers by hand in the baskets - I'll see how it goes.
I received this package in the mail yesterday from Taryn. It's the first giveaway I've ever won.
I love the fabrics - lots of great variety. They will be fun to work with :0)
Happy Quilting!!
