First block: #15 Kasuri niju kaku (Kasuri double square)
|#15 Kasuri double square from the book|
This block , a double square, uses 3 different fabrics. I went to the first fabrics that anchored my brown colorway for the blocks. (Moda FaLaLa)

Basket time: a Divided Basket pattern by Anna at Noodlehead
This basket is one of my favorite baskets to make! This is a nice sized basket, with so many possible uses!
|Divided basket by Noodlehead made by Susie's Sunroom|
Fabric: Le Cerise berries and script by Susan Winget
green tonal blender
Basket Dimensions: 13.5"wide, 7.5" deep, 10.5" tall including handles (7.5" tall without)
I fell in love with these fabrics... The black and cream outer fabric has French words for different berries . The companion fabrics are so pretty... with berry panels, a blueberries and leaves print , and a cute cream text with nature sketches. ( I *heart* these!)
The basket went together quickly, as it was the second time I made it, and I knew what to expect. The directions that Anna provides are excellent!
|I placed a blueberry panel on one side of the divider section|
|The other side of the divider has cherries|
I was nearly giddy with delight when I noticed that the berry panels fit exactly into the dimensions of the divider, and could be put in as a feature on the front pocket of the basket! (You , out there, know what a great feeling this is when you first discover something fits exactly for fussy cutting!!)

My dear friend is using this basket for her mail. I hope she thinks of me every time she uses it!
