divide and order - le challenge


This month's theme at le challenge was order. Something that we need lots of around here! I chose to use Noodleheads fabulous Divided Basket pattern to make a basket for all my rose star fabrics and papers (see an update on the quilt here).


For the main part of the basket I used Cactus Calico in Fiesta, Hope Valley by Denyse Schmidt; the pocket is Wallflower in Piney Woods, Hope Valley by Denyse Schmidt and the binding is Feathers in Grass, Sun Print by Alison Glass; the lining is Dotty curtain fabric in lime and the handles are cotton webbing.


It goes rather nicely with the thread catcher fabric basket I made last month!


So now everything's in order and I can get on with getting the quilt finished. I will try not to make another basket for next months link though I really could use these cute baskets in every room! 

Head over to le challenge to see what everyone else made and link up your 'order' projects (anything you've made this month that fits that theme). The new theme will be announced tomorrow.

  3. Perfect Lu! Exactly what I planned to make for this month's challenge but, as I haven't got further than cutting out the pattern and choosing fabric, I don't think it will get done in time. You have inspired me to get a move on though. x

  12. These are fabulous, much better than plastic bags...I'm sure some of mine are disintegrating as they are biodegrade alb and the wips have been in them so long!

  16. Awesome baskets, Lucy! I like the fabrics you chose for this one and the binding choice looks great with the Denyse Schmidt fabrics. I have a little obsession with baskets myself. So easy to make and so useful, what's not to love?
