Fabric Bins to Match Baby Quilt

A quick post today.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday!
Keep your tree up and keep celebrating!
It is still Christmas!
For at least 12 days.  And if you're a true traditional,
till the Feast of the Baptism.

Remember this baby quilt from a couple months ago?
Now that everything is unwrapped I wanted to show
the fabric baskets I made to go with it.

Instructions for various kinds of baskets are all over pinterest,
every one of them saying "easy."  They weren't kidding.
In about an hour you can get two of them whipped out.
Being short on time, I picked simple ones but had I known
just how easy, I'd have chosen ones with handles.

Once upon a time,
I loved sewing anything.  Now if it's not a quilt,
I'm more ho-hum about the other stuff.  Once I get into it,
though, I enjoy it--and it's good to be reminded of that.

The pattern I used was from Birch Fabrics Blog.

It has me thinking that from now on, when I give a baby
quilt that exactly matches the nursery, I should always
make some storage baskets to go along with it.

Who's already thinking about what to make in 2020?
Merry Christmas and happy quilting!

Cute baskets. I'll have to remember them, I normally make matching table runners / toppers or mugrugs with left over fabrics. I like the idea of the baskets.

Those are really practical gifts too. Beautiful.

I made some One Hour baskets with handles a few years ago. One of these days I'll make more. I have tons to make in 2020.
