So, the base of this idea is the basket, right? What size is it going to be? How much will fit in it?
Well, in order to make up a list of needed goodies to fill these baskets...I need to get the basket, right? The thought of regular wicker baskets from a thrift store or dollar store was discussed...but I'm not to much of a shopper anymore and thought...FABRIC!
A while ago I saved a link to Amanda Jean's Storage Cubes over at her site, Crazy Mom Quilts. While, last night I made one of these boxes...
I did increase my size to 7 1/2 inch fabric squares to begin with (rather than the tutorials 6 inches) and I think it turned out perfect for the intended use...
However, this particular one will not be given out because it has a few flaws I hope to remedy in the next 5 I make.
Now, to make that list of fun goodies to present to the missionaries in their new Fabric box!
Also, the promised picture of Amber's quilt that is hanging on my design wall...
But here is a small section of the Warm/Cool section of the quilt...I used 2 Fresh Flowers charm packs by Deb Strain for Moda. It's not enough to make a full quilt, so I had to come up with something to fill this into a twin sized quilt (well maybe almost twin size)...
And thou shalt love the Lord thy God
with all thy heart, and with all thy soul,
and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength:
this is the first commandment.
God commands us to first love Him...in and with everything. Do we? Do you even know God and what He has done for us? If you don't, Please read the left side bar and consider what you read!
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
