I’m updating this old post to include a link to the Pattern page, where you can find instructions for all 13 blocks.
Bet you thought I wouldn’t get even one setting done for the basket blocks, even though I said I would have them both done this week. Go ahead, admit it – you thought I’d flake. It’s okay. I thought I’d flake, because, well, I do that. But I didn’t. I just finished the setting instructions for “Setting 6” – the most popular setting option based on my highly scientific voting method.
Remember setting 6? It’s the one with the nine patch and rail fence sashing.
Now, here’s a disclaimer: I haven’t tested this pattern. No one is far enough along in my quilting group to test it, although I expect several will be in a week or so. If you use this setting and find any errors, please let me know so I can correct them. I am certain that the fabric yardage I provide is enough for the occasional whoops (see the note about the width of fabric, though!), so all should be good.

Thank you so much for playing along with us! I checked my stats today and nearly 200 people have downloaded block 12, with similar numbers for most of the other blocks. (Block 10 was especially popular, at 341 downloads). Because this has expanded beyond my small local group, I’ve created a Flickr group and would love for you to share your photos of your basket blocks and quilts.
I still have another setting option to put together. This is the one my mom wants to use, so it will get done sooner rather than later. It always helps to have someone physically present,
nagging encouraging me to finish.
