Little Baskets Finished

Years ago, I briefly flirted with basket making as a hobby, and have enjoyed having the ones I did make around the house to use for various purposes.

When I purchased Gail Pan's Patchwork Loves Embroidery a couple months ago, and saw that she had little baskets to stitch up, I knew they would have to be on my list to make!

This week I finished up my mini quilt of little baskets and am excited to share it today!  It measures about 21.5 x 24.5 inches.

The alternate blocks, sashing, border, and binding are all from three fat quarters of a line of fabric called Provencal by American Jane for Moda.  These sweet flowery prints seemed perfect to go with my embroidered baskets!

The backing is birds' nests, leftover from the bird quilt I made my husband earlier this year.  Birds' nests are a kind of basket, aren't they?! :)

I quilted Little Baskets in an uneven grid following the seam lines.
I really like the design this made!

Little Baskets will most likely hang somewhere in my house eventually, but isn't it fun hanging in the apple tree?!

Meanwhile, I had to pull out another basket I made years ago, and fill it with some rolled up quilts.

Linking up today with Quilting is more fun than Housework for Oh Scrap! and
Kathy's Quilts for Slow Sunday Stitching.
