Another Squirrel and TGIFF

Yup, I was distracted from my focus of working on, um … er … 5 quilts at once. And just HAD to start something new.

If you’re not familiar with “Squirrel” when it comes to quilt projects, check out THIS BLOG POST, where I explain it.

I like having various containers to hold things, clips, pieces of blocks, and a zillion other things. I saw the Petit Four Baskets byAnnie. It’s a FREE pattern and you can get it HERE (look under free patterns).

SEW … of course, I HAD to make one (or two) just so that I have more baskets!!!

I started looking through my Island Batik scraps. Voila! In no time at all, I had with 2 pieces of Primo, designed by Ebony Love for one basket and Opalescence (light mauve) paired with a nameless Island Batik fabric in soft pastels with turtles and seahorses on it for the other.

If you have extra 10″ squares, you can use them for this bag!

After, picking out the fabric and cutting what I needed … I was an extremely good girl and re-folded the scraps and put them neatly back where they belong! MIRACLE!!! It was obvious that this squirrel was meant to be!!!

In a very short time, I had my 2 little baskets … aren’t they cute?

  6. So cute! I’ve been meaning to make some of these, Wendy is a big fan of them and says they are a lot easier than Running with Scissors! You chose great fabrics for yours!

  9. Hi Gail! HAHA – only five quilts at once?! You just needed another new project. I get it. Totally. I love the fabric you chose! And those baskets are absolutely squirrel material. Gosh, you just might be passing along that squirrel over this way. Not that I need one – I just got bitten by a Valentine topper that was whipped up real quick! ~smile~ Roseanne

  10. I love them and use mine for scraps, clips and my slowing accumulating 2″ squares. Wow I finally caught up to TGIFF by accident of course. I was coming to see what your squirrel was so I had a double treat.
