I am so happy that I finally get to share this on my blog! I sent this basket to my quilting buddy that is all the way in Australia. I picked the slower cheaper way of postage needless to say it was slow and took two months to get to her! I was starting to stress out a little since the post office said 4 to 6 weeks. Everything arrived safely so it is all good. Yay! Love you Brie!!!
So here you have this beautiful fabric basket. I had bought a mini Posy charm pack which were the perfect size for this paper foundation block. Also there happened to have six different colors for six different flowers! It is called the Tallahassee Block. I used this pattern here the 8” one. (although I think that I shrunk but I can’t remember how much.)
I followed Ayumi’s Tutorial over at Pink Penguin but made some size adjustments for the basket. Before I assembled the basket I went and practiced some hand quilting with some light pink 12 wt. thread.
You can see the super cute bunny lining inside! I will for sure make this block again. I love the flowers!
If you haven’t tried paper foundation piecing you should give it a go! I love it!
