The image on the left was torn from an issue of Western Interiors magazine. The basket is a Hosig Di basket from the Wounaan and Embera people of Panama's Darien Rainforest. The article says the baskets are available through Rainforestbaskets.com.
I really liked the design and thought I would try to make a quilt using it. I did the sketch on the right. Designed it for a 50X70 inch quilt. It is machine pieced and quilted. It will be given to the Quilts of Valor Organization.
