I can strike off the second project from my goals for 2016: the Noodlehead divided basket.
I had actually planned to make my best friend one for her birthday but thought I should try this out before I do hers.
It turned out really nicely. I will use it for my crochet projects and wool.
I bought this pattern last year already and didn't dare to start it. I'm not sewing for that long and I honestly am very confident quilting but everything else, especially curved things and things I need to cut from templates, scare me a little. I was basically looking at this pattern the way a bunny stares at a snake!
I should trust my own sewing abilities a bit more!!
I used the beautiful fabrics designed by Etsuko Furuya for Kokka, I just love the deer with the red glasses!
Accompanied by the beautiful red cross hatch fabric by Carolyn Friedlander.
For the inside I opted for the red pearl bracelets by Lizzie House and some mixed glasses fabric, all to go with the main outer lining fabric. Love it!
The basket for my friend is also finished and I'll post photos of it soon!
Linking this with the Cologne Modern Quilter 'Modern Patch Monday'!
And to Finish up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts!
