Small Quilt Talk Challenge No 11

Having got some more of the correct white, I was able to go back and finish the basket quilt.  I only needed three more white squares to finish the front.

Once the front was done, it was time to decide on the back.  I had a piece of the pink striped fabric that kept in with the pink theme I was using.  I squared off the piece and added more white for the borders to make it big enough.
After simple quilting, I also used the white for the binding. The table quilt measures about 24" square.
The small pieces in the block may have been a challenge, but it was one I enjoyed doing, and I look forward to the next one.

Doing the "Happy Finish" dance for you :0) Amazing way to keep the backing centered with those borders; a proud finish.
