patchwork basket

reversible scrap patchwork basket made for project:quilting

This week, while surfing online, I stumbled upon something that sounded like so much fun to me.    
competition, based on Project runway.  But this was a competition for quilters.   
Basically, you are given one week to complete a challenge.  This week the challenge was to create something that was yellow and grey.  
 Please  check out the project quilting site if you are interested in joining.  It’s an annual competition that is open for all.  She explains everything so well on her website, im not going to even try. Everything you need to know you will find at  the  persimmon dreams website
I have plenty of grey as well as plenty of yellow fabrics that I could use, so I decided to compete. 
Given the time limit to compete, I had to make a small project, but I wanted to make something useful, that I would actually use. 
I thought about it for several hours, until I finally remembered that I have been meaning to make color coded baskets to use in organizing my sewing scraps.    
Of course, I decided to make my yellow scrap basket.  
I used a free pattern at  treserie   The pattern was very easy to follow and I finished the basket, including making my patchwork fabric in only a couple of hours. . 

Instead of using just one fabric for my 
interior and another for my exterior, I made patchwork fabric, which I then cut to the 17 by 17 inch size pieces that I needed to make the storage basket.  I count this project as a success. I completed it i time to enter the competition and it is made from only scrap fabric.  I even used up an orphan block.

It only took me only one evening, and it was fun. I will definately be making more baskets with this pattern and I look forward to project:quilting's next challenge.
