I used the bonus triangle squares left over from the basket blocks to create the "boxes" in the corner and center squares.
Sorry for the badly lit photo. It's a rare, gray, overcast day in Santa Fe–a good day to stay in, layer and baste quilts and begin to quilt them–but not so great for taking good photos ...
I don't think I have ever marked a quilt for quilting, except maybe in a workshop, but I like the idea of repeating the shape of the skinny round basket handles and so I see a marking adventure ahead for me today.
The Banded Basket block pattern can be found in the set of 2013 Lotto block patterns at the top of my Block Patterns page. Any of this year's 6-by-9 inch blocks could be used in this simple medallion idea. Now that's I've tested my little idea and can see it in the flesh (and fabric), I think I will use it again for a quick quilt.
