Baskets and Blooms Fabric Requirements

It’s time to gather your fabric and supplies for our latest quilt block challenge: Baskets and Blooms! This challenge features a quilt designed by Toby Lischko of Gateway Quilts and Stuff.

Still need to sign up for the challenge? It’s not too late! Sign up here!

This quilt can be made with solids or anything in your stash. There are 13 fabrics listed in the fabric requirements, but feel free to use as many fabrics as you want. The possibilities are endless!

This is a 7-week project with 18 blocks, three a week, and a week for the finishing instructions. Although it is designed with no border, there are fabric requirements and instructions if you want to include a border.

The finished quilt size is 51” x 68” without a border and 67” x 84” with an optional border.

Find the fabric requirements available for download below! And make sure to share your fabric choices in the Quilt Block Challenge Facebook Group – we can’t wait to see everyone’s work!

      Hello Denise!

      Thanks for stopping by! Currently, the Fabric Requirements download is working fine! Make sure you’re downloading it to a computer and not your smart phone, unless your smart phone already has a PDF app downloaded on to it.

      Hello Betty!

      I just checked the download for the fabric requirements and all systems are a go! Make sure you’re downloading it onto a computer and not to a tablet or smart device, unless those devices have a PDF reader app installed on them.

      Thank you!

    The fabric requirements for the entire quilt are printed at the bottom of the pattern you download. The places where it looks like you just click on to get the fabric requirements for each week still don’t work.

    Week one refers to “Blue” but does not specify “light blue” or “dark blue”. Do you have a recommendation?

      Hello Amy,

      Thank you for contacting us. You could lay them on each other first one way and then the other to see what you like best. But I do believe the dark center draws the eye in.But this is just my preference.

      Enjoy.

    The weekly fabric requirements do not work, nor do I see the templates for the quilt blocks. When I click on the download pattern button, the only thing that comes up is the original sheet. It has a picture of the finished quilt and the general fabric requirements, but no way to know the block we are supposed to be doing, nor the piecing for the block. How are we supposed to start this process?

    again this is ridiculously difficult…. don’t know what happened from the wk 1 to now but it’s IMPOSSIBLE to find week 3 blocks. I have clicked on so many links it’s making my head hurt. right now I have 12 windows open looking for the correct link. I’ve clicked on every link on the fb page, went to files, it’s not in there. very disappointing

    I have read thru everyone’s comments and did everything that was replied to them to open the fabric requirements. I still cannot open them. I’ve done the hard refresh and still nothing. I even closed everything and restarted the computer and still no help.
