Ruby's Flower Basket Applique Quilt Kit

The Ruby's Flower Baskets quilt kit includes beautiful batik fabrics to make the 72" x 88" quilt. Originally packaged as a block of the month, the full kit is divided into 12 packets. Piece the baskets then fill them with flowers using your favorite method of applique. The kit includes Ruby Short McKim's original, full size, flower designs just as they appeared in syndicated newspaper columns during the 1930s. Each three-block packet includes a swatch sheet with color placement guides along with a chapter of Ruby's story as an early quilt pattern designer. The fabrics in the kit are the same as shown in the picture although they are much more vibrant in person:  Sky blue for the background, with an assortment of intense blues for the pieced baskets and rich hues for the appliqued flowers.  Includes binding. Does not include backing.
