Cake Basket – quilt block pattern for paper piecing

Cake Basket is one of those great traditional blocks many people imagine when they think of Grandma’s quilting.  Paper piecing makes quick work of all those little triangles forming the basket’s “handle.”  For a true traditional “Cake Stand” block, cover pieces C1, C2, and C4 with a single piece of fabric.
