I love quilt designs by Ruby Short McKim. These patterns were published weekly in newspapers around the country. Cherry Basket block appear first on March 30, 1930 in the Kansas City Kansan. I went to EQ and was able to find all of the patterns. The EQ picture is how the original pattern was designed. It will be much easier to reproduce using updated methods of constructions. I need to do more research as to the colors. Each original patterns usually had color recommendations. I would love to make this quilt. I have a vintage top with all but one of the patterns.

I have a few more examples of this pattern since I first wrote about Ruby McKim's Sampler Quilt.
Found this quilt in Oregon last summer. It is old blocks with a current setting. It is machine quilted beautifully. Wish I knew who did it, they did a beautiful job and used the original quilting pattern of Ruby McKim's. I had to have it.
