Baskets and a pillow

Hello! Time goes by very fast and it is two weeks from my last post!! There are so many things to do with the children but I had a little time for sewing.

I wanted to try to make a basket. I made the first one then another and another one and here it is:

tyyny ja kori 024(2)I machinequilted it  with straight lines and loops.

Rex had a look and I think he likes specially the orange basket…

I made a pillow from scraps, I wish I had more fabric in these colors – a quilt would be nicetyyny ja kori 019Here I made  quilting by hand

We had a small walk in the olivefield and we found these lovely flowers again. They are one kind of daffodils ( tazetta) and they remind me of Finnish Easter with they smell.



Thank you for your visit, I hope you have a happy weekend!

    • Dear Sujata, you have inspired me with your book so much! I wanted to try to make only one basket and the basket became another one… and then I found your technic to make “steps” and to put more color to the quilt. x Anneli
