Turkey Red. Double Pink. Poison Green. Chrome Yellow (sometimes called Antimony, or Chrome Orange). If these iconic 19th-century fabric colors catch your eye, then you need to get to know Sarah.
For such a straightforward design, this quilt is surprisingly complex—and full of personality. The pops of Chrome Yellow tell us that, pretty as she may be, she’s kind of a firecracker. The Double Pink sashing strips suggest that Sarah is a rule-follower, sure, but the patches of Poison Green say that if you’re thinking about cutting out a few minutes early for an ice cream sundae, well … Sarah could be persuaded.
This colorful, classic Basket quilt, finally finished by the Quiltfolk Foundry, has never met a style of home decor she didn’t love. Show some hospitality and bring her home today!

Imperfections: Every Quiltfolk Foundry quilt in our shop began its life as an unfinished vintage top or collection of loose blocks. We seek out lost tops and blocks that are in good condition, but due to the source material’s age and care history, some imperfections in the finished quilts may be present. We hope you’ll see them as we do, just another part of the story.
