This shape collection PDF includes all of the shapes for Basket 6-inch blocks. This is a very popular size.
The handle can be pieced OR appliquéed. There are extra matches so it is easy to sew a perfectly positioned handle.
There are also shapes to print for back-basting appliqué—easy preparation and perfect positioning.
Features of this Shape Collection (PDF)
- shapes to print on fabric
- diagrams showing how much fabric you need
- shapes without seam allowances to print on freezer paper (just in case you want templates)
- a choice of regular layouts or 7 combo layouts to use fabric efficiently and save time
- design notes
- detailed instructions on the All About Inklingo blog for piecing and back-basting appliqué
- a choice of methods—hand or machine, with or without appliqué
You can make all of these variations in 6-inch blocks.
This is another traditional Basket 6-inch setting (12-inch block), once featured on a US postage stamp.
This Basket 6-inch shape collection includes 7 optional “combo” layouts to save fabric and save time. You may already have triangles in some of your other Inklingo shape collections but the 7 combo layouts make this collection special. For example, Combo 4 (above) prints all of the shapes at once on fabric 6 x 13.25, so you can mix and match for a scrappy quilt.
Love the lines. Quilt more!

Love my first 6-inch basket. This is only my third or fourth block using Inklingo and I love the results! I followed Linda’s back-basting lesson to appliqu√© the handle. I love it! I am so happy that I discovered Inklingo!

The 3″ ones are a treat, the 4.5″ ones are amazing and these 6″ baskets are the icing on the cake! They go together perfectly and oh, so easily! I can’t imagine wanting to make baskets any way but with my templates printed on fabric using Inklingo!
