The Big Basket Quilt -- A Friday Finish!

I'm excited to mark another quilt off of my to-do list today.  This is the Big Basket Quilt.  It is a charity quilt for my local quilt guild.  I used polyester batting to show off the Egyptian Eye longarm quilting on it.  Some fullness needed to be worked in on this quilt.  The Circle Lord giant template board did not disappoint.

This quilt measures 100.5" wide by 93.5" long.  Here's a close-up pic of the quilting:

The pieced back just used up some odds and ends.

I'm linking up at SewCanShe for Show Off Saturday.
This is finish number ONE for my Q3 FAL.  I'll be linking up at the end of the quarter for this.
This quilt was on my list during the 2017 Q3 Goal Setting Party.  I'm linking up at Marci Girls Design for the 2017 FAL.
This was also my OMG goal for July.  Whohoo! It's done so early in the month.  I'll be linking up at Elm Street Quilts. later this month.  I'm doing the happy dance here!

Today I'm linking up with Myra at Busy Hands Quilts for Finished or Not Friday.
