BASKET BLISS

Happy Sunday morning!  I don't usually post on a Sunday, but I got these baskets sewn together yesterday and wanted to show you : )
These came to me last May from two groups that I'm in. The mid century Modern group, and the great Canadian scrap busting group.  I asked for bright funky baskets and that's what I got !


I layed them out on my floor and trimmed them to all the same size. I had to add a strip to a few of them, but that just adds to the fun !



there's even a basket from selvedges



Not quite sure if I will do a border or not, but I do have some signature blocks that I want to include
I'm happy these are together and not still getting buried in my sewing room : )

Enjoy your day

Carla

What a fun quilt. I have a pattern that I have been meaning to make with a similar feel using a layer cake. What a great scrap quilt idea.
