I showed you a tease last week. It was fabric that I had created a gazillion years ago that I’m pretty sure was meant to be a jacket. But when I found it I knew immediately it was perfect for a project that I was taking a class for last Saturday.
Are you ready?????? TA-DA!!!!!!!!!
Presenting my quilted Market Basket. Isn’t it just too darn cute?????? I love it!!!!!!
My BFF Marilyn and I went on a row-by-row collecting road trip a little over a week ago. We headed south from where we live to visit several quilt shops in the northern San Diego area. At one of the shops Grand Country Quilter we saw a quilted basket and immediately knew we needed to take the class. There was a bit of homework prior to the class but there was never a doubt that we would head south again to take the class. The class was only 4 hours but they “guaranteed” us that if we did our homework, we would leave with a completed basket. And, by golly, we both left with finished baskets and we were both very, very happy.
Here’s a few other pictures of my basket.
If you live in Southern California, check with Grand Country Quilter in San Marcos. I’m sure they will be offering the class in the future.
In the mean time, I’m going to see if I can redesign this to work with the market baskets that you can sometimes find at World Market/Cost Plus or even at Wal-Mart.
