About 5 years ago, my daughter and a friend, Lucy, and I swapped baskets made from scraps for Bonnie Hunter's quilt called Lucy's baskets. I have a total of 230. They have been in a project box all this time. I am not sure I want to set them the same way that Bonnie Hunter did. I want to make this my One monthly goal for October. I would like to make it to a top, but I will be happy if I can figure out a plan and make a decent start with them. There is a lot of time invested in these and happy swapping memories. I had included this as one of my goals at the beginning of the year hoping I would not let another year pass without making a plan.
They are very small at just 3 1/2 inches. The basket handles are hand appliqued.
Bonnie set hers with a plain square in between. The pattern is in her book More adventures with leaders and enders. I have 9 out of the 12 quilts in the book started and, I finished 2 of the them, Easy street and lazy Sunday. I actually saw this quilt in person at one of her lectures. It was lovely.
