Sewing Baskets

Sewing Baskets (1)This eye-popping quilt is another one that I have been handquilting this summer.  I was so pleased to stick with it and get it finished in a reasonable amount of time.  You may remember that these blocks were made in the Liberated Basket class I taught last April.  My main goal was to show several different styles of baskets.Sewing Baskets (2)This one with the interior triangles came about when I demonstrated the triangles and then wanted to come up with a way to use them.  That's one of my favorites!Sewing Baskets (3)The other challenge I made for myself was that I would use only these 5 fabrics.  I could have used three (the print, the green and the red), but it was hard to stick with only one red.  You know I love scrappy, so this is very different for me.Sewing Baskets (4)The sewing print was such fun to work with!  It's something I had stashed away several years ago with no plan.  This was the perfect use for it.Sewing Baskets (5)
