Disappearing Hour Glass

 At our last Orchard quilters meeting we did Disappearing Hour Glass blocks.
I made 6 blocks and miss cut one. Hate it when that happens!
 So I made a table topper with 4 of them and a small table topper with one. Then I used the mistake and made it into a basket. The block was a jinx I meant to put the pieced on the inside so  the boarder I added would turn down. Well I reversed it . Now I have a whimsical basket! Best of all I don't have to sew 4 buttons on the 4 turned down sides. I like the points!  Some times mistakes are fun!
I am not sure if I will keep the table toppers.  Maybe they are Christmas gifts?
