BOM Baskets

I worked all morning making these #¥£ baskets. The smallest pieces are cut at one inch. Lynn, what are you doing to me?! I've unstiched one block twice and given up. It will just have to do. I'm tired. The second block came out a bit better.
Also I don't know if I lost the basket handle fabric (red and yellow basket) or if it wasn't included. But I improvised. I used two of my leftover fabrics and if the points matched up, it would be perfect.
The second basket (yellow and green) is my RP version. The jury is still out on which I'll like best.
I've been hoarding (again? I have serious problems!) these RP fabrics for years and I just may get over them with this quilt.

So here they are for your viewing pleasure.

Take care, Brandie
