After putting together my free form scrappy baskets I found myself flipping through Edyta Sitar's book Handful of Scraps and was charmed by a beautiful basket quilt, also made from scraps but much more structured.
The squares finish off at 1" so the baskets really aren't that large - I think it's a 13" block when all is said and done. I'm lovin' the scrappy browns across the top edge of each basket.
I probably made mine the hard way, using up tiny scraps and sewing the blocks together individually rather than strip quilting, but it's supposed to be a scrap quilt, right?
The makings of three baskets are on the design wall. Thinking that they will become a table runner, I used the same brown floral for the base for the first two but now I'm thinking that I might make them all different. They are lots of fun to make and I'm tempted to see what a basket would look like in only one or two colours....M
