Quilted Easter Baskets

I found this nice tutorial for an Easter basket and I just had to try it out. After making two baskets, I decided to shrink the size down. I took 2 inches off pretty much all the way around and really liked the results. The originals are very nice, but I really wanted them smaller just because I had smaller pieces of Easter fabric to use up. In fact, I ended up sewing two pieces of fabric together to make a wide enough piece for one of the baskets.

I like the way my smaller ones turned out however, I think I will make a bunch in both sizes. I'm certain my granddaughters will want one for themselves as well as my daughter and sister! The original tutorial can be found here.
