I’ve mentioned before that Accuquilt has free patterns available on their site. You don’t necessarily have to have a die cutter to use them. I came across this free pattern and decided to try it out. You definitely don’t need a cutter for this one, but it is nice if you decide to do a strippy version.
The pattern actually has directions for six different sized baskets. I decided to make the smallest size and to use a practice piece of machine quilting I had laying around.
I dad some leftover backing from the baby quilt I’ve been working on and used that for the lining.
That ugly fabric I used on the back of my practice piece will be hidden inside.
Ta daaa! This little basket is about 3 1/2 inches high and the bottom is about 4 1/2 inches square.
It would be good for storing lots of little things in the sewing room.
You can click here to find all the current deals going on at Accuquilt. I think I’ll go digging through my other machine quilting samples to make some more baskets in other sizes.
Have a great day!
