Fabric Basket Swap

I finished up my basket for my fabric basket swap.  I used a tutorial on Leslie's Art and Sewing.  It was pretty easy to follow. I made a sample with some polka dot purple fabric first and then made the blue one I was planning on giving.

I loved the polka dot one so much better.  So the polka dot basket is going to my swap partner.  Hope she likes it. I then made a polka dot matching folder for the postcard quilt patterns from Villarose patterns.  My friend Jessica carries all the patterns since her "quilty mom" is the author of the patterns.  Jessica even has some patterns of her own under the label Homegrown. I still have to run by the store and get some velcro for the tab.  As you can see from the picture it is flying in the wind.  I also threw in some mini-charm packs  and a spool of some pretty green Mettler thread. I really had a good time with this swap.  I would do another basket swap any day.  Hmmm.  Good idea for an Austin Modern Quilt Guild swap.
