The fabric baskets are beautiful. I have yet to make one of these though I've seen many methods. I love using the heavy weight pellon as it gives such a nice sturdiness to projects like this. Baskets are so handy and I love the idea of diapers in one. What else do you store in these cute baskets? I'm thinking fat quarters or sewing supplies!

How do you count the quilt stitches in the quilt?

Quilt stitches are counted by the number of stitches per inch. On the sewing machine you usually sew at 10-12 stitches per inch. On modern machines, that's a 2.2 or 2.5 on your stitch length setting.

I am new at quilting, what are fat quarter?

A fat quarter is a piece of fabric that is approximately 18" x 21". It's a quarter of a yard, but instead of cutting it at 9" all the way across the width of the fabric, it's cut at 18", then cut again along the fold. Typically, this will give you better use of the fabric.
