Woven Basket - Project Number 9

This is the last completed project at the quilting retreat.  It is a Biscuit Basket.  
We will only be here til noon and then we are on the road headed home.  I will continue to sew at home today and this week...


This is not a tutorial ... Just photos of the steps.  I used the Biscuit Basket pattern by Aunties Two*













I plan to finish projects 8 and 10 and 12 and 13 at home - hopefully in the evenings this week.  I will post when I complete them.


Thanks for following along...This was a great way to complete all my UFO's! 


Enjoy your day!


Marcia


P.S. I will answer all your comments and questions on Monday and Tuesday. I will also post tutorials over the next couple weeks about any of the projects that were my creations.  I will also share the information about any of the other patterns I purchased. Thanks! I love your comments!

Marcia, at our monthly quilt store meeting last week there was a discussion between myself and another quilter regarding what stiffening material is used.
Yours looks like cardboard but know is has to be something else, what did you use?
Your basket is one of my fav colors

You are just the busy little bee this week. I haven't gotten much done myself. Oh well, too many other things to do.

I bought two rolls of that stiff interfacing at a show last spring and tried to make a tote bag. It was a massive failure! I have the biscuit pattern, too, and have made one of those successfully. I'll have to reuse the failed tote strips for some baskets. Thanks for the reminder!
