A Happy Little Project

I just wanted to share this little project with you today. I made it for my mom's birthday a couple of weeks ago, but now that she has it in her hands, I can show it to you.

Isn't it cute? It's just a little fabric basket. I didn't use any tutorial, just sewed up some rainbow squares and did the math to figure out how big to cut the other pieces :)

I used the little scraps left over from cutting all the rectangles for the Scrappy Chevron quilt that is currently in progress. The inside I believe is a Joel Dewberry print. Not sure what it is exactly, sorry!

The bottom is the Fireworks print from Frippery. I did a slight oops there- I forgot the interfacing. But at long at the basket is sitting on something, it's just fine.

Of course, I filled the little basket with other goodies before gifting it to my mom :)

What have you finished lately? Linking up to Finish it Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts!
