|Little baskets in progress...|
|Much easier to cut the slits and then turn inside out than to cut|
down to 1/4" and then try to turn it inside out...
Anyway, I mulled it over and came up with a little basket that has softly rounded corners. I had to make a cut-out for the inside of the basket handles, but other than that, all I will have to do is make sure the edges of the baskets are securely attached. No worrying about fraying edges and lots of time spent pinning etc. Yes, a bit of time spent now, but so much faster later on when I will be more pushed for time if I want to meet the July deadline. And all the backing fabric was leftover bits and pieces that should blend well with my quilt top fabric--very key for making it go faster with the stitching.
