One day, maybe one day I will have my life return to a pace where I can keep up with quilting and blogging in a more systematic way. Until that happens I'll keep dipping in when I can. Today I'm sharing a small finish that was completed on the last day of the 1st Quarter, but I've had no energy to write this little post, until now.
I sewed along with @johannaweidner, in March for the Bloembasketalong. Here's my finished basket.
I generally prefer sewing flat things like quilts, but making this little basket was a lot of fun. It's not perfect, especially the binding but that's ok it's the first one and I made it at sew alongs so not on my best machine. I think the main fabric is an older design by Anna Marie Horner....and the solids are Konas.
Here's another shot which shows the one handle for the basket.
I think I will make a few more of these baskets in the next while. They will make great gifts. It would be nice to make a couple for my grand boys and they would also make great gifts for co workers and quilting friends. This is my second finish for the 1st quarter of the 2019 FAL. The original post is here. I'll be linking this post with the FAL link up at She Can Quilt. I'll also link up with the TGIFF link up which is hosted by Laura of Slice of Pi quilts this week, and with the Bragg About Your Beauties linkup with Michelle of from Bolt to Beauty.
