I'm so excited because I FINALLY was able to make one of those items that has been on my virtual "to do" list for what seems like forever! The item in question? Ayumi's Patchwork Basket Pattern available for free on her blog Pink Penguin. It's super adorable (as are all of Ayumi's patterns!) and I've been wanting one of my own forever. And make one I did...in fact, make THREE I did! lol
I started this project with some extra motivation from Lynne's Dead Simple Quilt Along over at Lily's Quilts. She had the lovely idea of using a color palette from a generator. I chose a pretty color combo from an inspiration picture over at Design Seeds. If you missed my post about that selection, you can find it over at Lynne's Blog.
The baskets are little, but I find them a fun size for storage for smaller items. I now have a new beautiful place to store my medications! lol. One is currently storing my hexagons for the pillow swap (more on that later) and the other I gave to Caitlyn for "food" storage.
Caitlyn is enjoying her new kitchen with her new basket. It's the perfect size for her!
Playing in the kitchen!
If you are thinking at all about making one of the patchwork baskets, then do it! I love mine and I'm pleased I made more than one.
