Rachels Baskets
What a fabulous classic quilt this is!  And you have the option of making  it one of two sizes! Double or Crib, both have the same number of blocks and pieces.   Make it easier and use the Marti Michell Log Cabin Ruler, Set N, Set B and her Setting Triangle Ruler. (Or you can use the paper templates that are included in the pattern)   If you've been collecting her Templates and Rulers during our Marti and Me Clubs, this is a great pattern to try them with!
This is a 2 session Class
