Scrappy Baskets....


I have been making scrappy baskets using this no waste method HERE....  sorting my scraps into colours as I build the little beach houses....

There were 3 colours that I needed to catch up on, yellow, blue and light neutrals so that's what I got up to on Sunday...

Firstly I made all the quilt as you go bases...


I have to admit I do like the look of them as mats... perhaps I will do scrappy mats next year....

After a bit of overlocking and wrestling with those stubby handles they were all done and filled with left over scraps ...

I seem to have lots of blue but hardly any yellows (I even included my oranges in that basket)


... and they have been added to my bookshelf.....


My Japanese blocks quilt is presently under the needle for evening handwork - sewing down the binding.... 


Righto, Gotto Go....  midweek has loomed and I am behind on grown up jobs....

Wonderful baskets and a nice way to store items and have something beautiful on the shelves.

They are lovely, and I agree, they would look nice as table/place mats too! xx

Boy do I love those baskets - and I think the idea of mats is an excellent one! I have a lot of blue too, which is odd since it's not my favorite, lol.

'Grown up jobs'??!! Oh golly are we supposed to do them, as well as sew?! Aren't your baskets as pretty as a picture all lined up on the shelves..good to see nearly a year's worth emerging.

Helen said...

The row of baskets look great !

Jeanette said...

Love your baskets. Sew pretty all in a row. Hugs,xx

Susan said...

Hate those grown up jobs - I hardly have any yellows oranges or reds either - they occupy the same amount of space as each of the other colours like blue purple green pink etc...I love the idea of these baskets - just no where to put them.

Louise said...

Doesn't everyone lump together their oranges and yellows? There never seems to be enough yellow, no matter what. I agree that your baskets look great in the mat stage, but even better as baskets :)

I love those baskets too. I think it is awesome how you made the pattern waste-less. They look great on the shelf. Organized and colourful; what's not to love? ;^)

Janet said...

Oh I like this idea. So pretty having a rainbow of bags. I might have to copy your idea....

Lin said...

Great baskets - I only got one made, where has the year gone! Yes they do look great as mats - that was my other plan too - oh well, there is always next year. xx
