A little on the side ...

Yesterday I found a blog with a great tutorial on it for a cute little fabric basket. Unfortunately I can't remember which one it was, so I can't give credit to the right person, Sorry :o( I'll do a bit of digging and see if I can find it for you, she had some great tutorials on her blog.

Edited note: Thank you to Sue Stubbings for telling us the blog address for Ayumills great blog 'Pink Penguin', you can find the tutorial for the baskets Here :o)

So I had a little play, my first attempt, using some charm squares trimmed down to 2 1/2" It's nice, the larger size works well, but.... well it just didn't quite do it.







So today I made the little one, when the fabrics were laid out, I realised there needed to be some separation between the base and the blocks, so I added some piping. Now I really love this one! They were so quick and easy to make, I can see a few Christmas gifts featuring these in the near future!

Happy weekend!

Thanks Sue, that's exactly the one! I'll amend my post, I'm grateful to you for letting me and everyone else know. Hugs

They both look great, but I think you're right, the piping on the smaller one just finishes it off beautifully.

I agree with QuiltSue, the piping finishes it off beautifully. I've just has a look at the tutorial and am thinking some of those Birdie fabrics I won might make a lovely basket :)
