A basket case

Summer. Blazing sun, hot and humid. Time for small projects. My great teacher Marganit showed us how to make this cute basket, and I whipped it in a day

It's so rewarding to be able to start and finish a project in a day or two. Usually I spend weeks on one quilt. It's really great to see results so quickly, gives you a boost and energy to start another project. Maybe some more baskets - different sizes and shapes?

This basket is for my lovely daughter-in-law Y. It measures 12x6 inches.
The pictures were taken in my balcony at 08:30 in the morning. Look how sunny it is, already 30 degrees (86). Like I said, time for small projects, light books and cold icy drinks in the shade.

I'm linking to Manic Monday at SewHappyGeek {Sew} Modern Monday at Canoe ridge Creations and Fabric Tuesday at Quilt Story.
