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!
