The Bee in my Bonnet Row Along...Row 12 - Sewing Baskets!!!


Good Morning cute people!
Thanks sew much for tuning in for row 12 of the


Today we are making sewing baskets to go with our cute row of spools:)



Layout your pieces...


Begin by sewing the half square triangles onto the sides 
of the basket and basket bottom....
trim...


Press towards the triangles.


Sew the remaining squares onto the sides of the basket bottoms like this.


Now sew the bottom basket section to the top basket section.
You can see that my seams don't line up and it bothered me enough to "unsew" it and fix it later...:)


Now sew the handle sides to the white
background piece.


Then add the top.


Next add the background sides...


and sew the handle section to the basket section for your first basket block!!!!

YaY!!!!



Now cut more basket/handle combos from your stash ...


and stitch them up for a total of 7 cute sewing baskets.


Cut background strips for sashing and sew them between the baskets as you join them together in a row.
As always...
add larger sashings on each end and trim your row to measure correctly.
Cut 2 strips and sew to the top and the bottom of your basket row.


Now you have a sweet row of sewing baskets for your quilt!


We are getting near the end of the rows!!! 

 If you are behind...
catch up quick before summer gets here and the row along ends:)

***EDIT
The row along has ended!
The pattern for this quilt, several more quilts and blocks are in my new book! 
Now you can reserve your copy of my book 
"Quilty Fun"

Don't forget to post your rows on the 
we all love to see them!!!
Have a quilty kind of day...

I think that the most fun part is picking out the fabrics for each block. I am loving this quilt along... can't wait to start assembling my baskets!

I love these blocks! My husband fusses at me if I have too many projects going on at once, so I have to finish one thing before I can start another, but the good news is I just finished my Great Granny square top using your directions, and taught it to a couple of friends at church too! I've been pinning all of these tutes to make later!

Ansje said...
