A Bunch of Baskets

I've finished my baskets for Canasta, all 61 of them.


And I found the perfect place for each one in my top.


I really liked the random setting on the Canasta pattern cover, but thought that might be a little too much with all my assorted baskets, so they are going to be setting up straight.


Someone asked about my fabric, it's all Fig Tree by Moda.

Here's how I came up with all the different baskets, one piece of graph paper, one pencil, and one highlighter!  Even though I drew them all up, I still wasn't sure how they would look when I put them all together.



But I think they all turned out just fine.

  11. I think your baskets turned out better than "just fine!" One of the many reasons I like following your quilting adventures is that you are not afraid to change a pattern to your style... it's fun to see how you creatively make it your own!
