Little Basket

Hi all! I made this little basket last night while I couldn't sleep. They are all over the internet quilt sights. It's just a sq. with some darts. I started with a 15" sq. and after enveloping and quilting it was 14". I took a 3 1/2 " dart on all 4 sides. I also stippled it .
It's a nice size for small stuff. The sight I found it is on Pinterest.  It's a very nice tutorial.
It's all most 1:00 AM so time to go to bed.
Good night and good dreams! Flicsha

My weekend sewing.

 This was DD Jennie's Basket from quilt group. I finished it for her . She loves pink!
 This is a ruler and rotary cutter caddy. I looked to see if there was a pattern for one and didn't have any luck. So I got busy and just made my own.
I wanted it sort of like a gun case . I made it for my 12 1/2" ruler. I also put a long pocket inside for the cutter and what ever else I want to carry in it.

I need some rest and can get back to sewing!
Thank goodness it's Monday!
Stay happy and sewing! Flicsha

In the mail today!

Jo in the Falkland Islands sent me this adorable little wall hanging! I need to find a home on my wall somewhere but I wanted to share it with everyone. The flowers are dimensional. It's just so much fun. I think it will go in my sewing room .
Thank you Jo so much.
Keep sewing ! Flicsha

Easter baskets

 I made these some time ago. They are going to be Easter baskets.
I saw a tutorial for this made from paper so I thought I would try it in fabric. I put interfacing in it but I would use a heavy weight next time. I used a light weight fusible. On the purple . I had to tack them to get them to hold there shape.
I had used a medium weight on the turquoise and it held it's shape better.
You could use them for Easter candy or rolls if you like.
It's been a cold Spring so far. I hope it warms up soon so I don't have to run the heat for a while!
Say happy and keep sewing! Flicsha
