I don’t think I’ve gone this long without making a Divided Basket before! It’s always such a satisfying finish and so useful. They’re fun to fill with pretty much anything and I’ve seen them filled with all sorts of gifts with all different themes, love that!
These have always been great for the coraling of diapers, and the main reason I created the pattern in the first place – perfect baby gift! It seems like yesterday that we were using diapers like crazy, but my girls are in 2nd and 4th grade already. It made me feel very nostalgic thinking back to that time and how it passed so quickly (and I always always love that I got to be around for awesome times like these). This was the first time I’ve bought diapers since I put together a basket for my niece when she was born. Makes me desperately wish for a ‘pause’ button.
I’ve taken a liking to using Soft and Stable for the interfacing on this project. If you’re new here, I’ve written a bunch of tips for working with Soft and Stable with this pattern that you can read. You can read those posts HERE and HERE for more tips. Anyway, I had fun picking through my stash for lining fabrics. I had been hoarding this arrow print (designed by Maureen Cracknell for Art Gallery Fabrics) for what feels like too long. I love the splashes of color it adds! And did you see Maureen’s new collection that’ll be shown at quilt market in a few weeks? Love it.
Hope you’re having a great fall and soaking up all the sunshine.
