A Little Patchwork Basket

I IMG_8741.jpgwas recently searching for a simple (and free) pattern to make  baskets to give as Teacher thank you gifts.  And found this perfect pattern by Amy Smart from the blog Diary of Quilter.

The instructions were so easy to follow and the sizing was perfect, so the biggest challenge was choosing the fabric (which is actually my favourite partof any new project).

I choose Elea Lutz’s Milk Sugar Flower collection for one basket and then a combination of Sarah Jane’s Sommer collection and Sprinkle from Cotton and
Steel.

IMG_8713The baskets turned out really well, and I even added a couple of french knots to create a little floral crown on the Sommer leaping bunny.  And here’s a hint – as well as being a cute little basket they also make the perfect bassinet for a teddy or doll.
