Use vintage reproduction fabrics to make this pretty Vintage Delight Basket Quilt. Although it uses basket quilt blocks, you may not notice right away, since the baskets are combined in larger blocks that give the quilt a more abstract feel. The soft red and white fabrics in this quilted throw will add a touch of vintage charm to your decor.
