Here we are well into Spring and I just remembered my Spring Baskets wall hanging. Last Spring I went through all my quilting books and found many wonderful baskets. I decided on Pat Sloan's basket pattern for my wall hanging. This is also the first time I used fusible web. I must say, I much prefer the softer look of needle-turn applique. The hand stitching around the baskets was done with Aurifil Wool thread.
This cute little basket is from a Better Homes and Gardens book called, Designers & Their Quilts. I reduced the basket size to 3.5" high. My sister recently gave me a charm pack called Hopscotch by Chloe's Closet and I thought it would be perfect for my little baskets. I like to prewash all my fabric. Yes, even charm packs! All the prep work is done and my baskets are ready for stitching.
Before you go, how about a little stroll through the Spring garden.
