My 1 Hour Basket

After seeing this post at A Quilter's Table, I wanted to make a basket of my own. The 1 hour basket tutorial at KelbySews is easy to follow.


I used home decor weight fabric that I quilted with cotton batting, and used another home decor fabric for the lining. Cotton batting in the handles makes them sturdy.


The basket is roomy, and I can store lots of fat quarters in it, for instance.

A colorful first finish for May, indeed!

  1. Her blir det orden på sakene. Denne ble så flott. Elsker å se andre stoffer enn de vanlige i bruk. Skulle kanskje ha sydd meg en selv for å samle alt som flyter rundt på sybordet.

  8. This is a really cute version. Glad to hear you can make it by quilting some batting rather than using the interfacing in the pattern. I had been wondering if that would work.
