Basket Progress…

Baskets done and trimmed…all twenty of them…! 

(A couple of readers were wondering how I did the handles…they are all cut on the bias and hand appliquéd before joining to the rest of the basket.)

I pulled out my bag of homespun strips…left over from this project.P1150578 Don’t you just LOVE left-overs?!
 P1230810

And I sliced and diced them into 1 1/2 inch squares…to make a colourful border to go around each basket…(I laid them out so that you could get the idea…)

P1230814

…which is what I will be working on sometime today…or maybe tonight!P1230812  The simple basket template was made by me so if you would like a copy just send me an email and I will forward you a copy.  I would hate to become a basket case all by myself!

Thanks for popping by!!  It’s always nice to have visitors!  Hope you have a good one!~P

  1. This is the cutest basket quilt I have ever seen. Thank you for telling us that the handles are hand appliqued on. I thought maybe there was some extra-careful machine sewing taking place.
    Such great use of the plaids, er, I mean homespuns! I love the shape of the basket.
    You could always show your template and measurements in a blogpost, then anyone could find them and you wouldn't have to do a bunch of emailing. Like, to me, for example. Just an idea.

  18. Yes your baskets are lovely. But it's your original quilt with the snowman in the centre block that I have fallen in love with. What a great surprise he is, and looks so pleased with himself too. Joy

  20. I too love what you have done. You can take something simple and turn it into something spectacular. Must go dig mine out and get started.

  21. Love your baskets and the border just makes it. I think the basket body will also convert well to make a coffee cup if you were so inclined.
