This little fabric basket was made using the well known tutorial by Ayumi at Pink Penguin. I have wanted to try it for a very long time.
The basket is smaller than it looks in photos. The spool of thread is 2"; the scrappy squares finish at 1.5". It is just so cute!
I made this basket for my secret partner is the Scrappy Swap 2011. In the swap you give away about a fat quarter's worth of scraps and a small scrappy item. It is perfect to hold the scraps I am sending, see how they fit. I hope my partner will like it.
I am finally getting a chance to catch up on the Mystery Quilt Along. This is a Mariner's Compass, finished as a square instead of the usual circle. I really love the drama of this block and these Amy Butler fabrics are great to play with.
I have more to do before I am totally caught up to the QAL, so more on it later but I could not resist showing off this block today.
I have added a link to Fabric Tuesday, go have a look at the lovely projects there.
It was Thanksgiving long weekend in Canada. The pumpkin pies and turkey dinner we made turned out wonderfully and were enjoyed with family and friends. Now we are enjoying the cooler sunny fall days - my favourite season. I hope you have a good week.
