The color palette challenge inspired me to dig into some of my boxes of fabric and give it a try. In February the challenge photo was a bunch of figs, and the colors were a springtime mix of greens, pinks and yellows. What else would one do with figs than put them in a basket! I've never tried a basket quilt block and so I decided my challenge block would have to be a basket. After looking at several styles, I chose the traditional "Basket of Chips" pattern in a 10 inch block, and made up a sample.
