This month my quilt guild is doing a "container swap." Basically any basket or bucket style container works, as long as it is either pieced or quilted. We each got a slip of paper with a little bit about our partners on it. My partner liked polka dots, Violet Craft's fabrics, Mo Bedell's fabrics (and they're both in our guild!), and text/word fabric. I found this adorable tutorial on the list of tutes we put together on our guild blog.

I made this one first, using some Violet Craft Broken Herrringbone and some Lizzie House Pearl Bracelet. The Herringbone was pretty much perfect for this pattern, I love how it lined up on the corners! I quilted this in a square straight line spiral.



Then I decided it might not be enough, so I made a teeny one with some polka dots and text fabric.
I quilted this one in an orange peel/dogwood blossom pattern. I love the look of this when it's done well, I will definitely practice it some more!



Then the two sizes just seemed weird together, so I made a third one in between the two sizes. This is some Mo Bedell fabric (pink) and some DS Denyse Schmidt for Joann Fabrics. I quilted two wavy diagonal lines and then in a wavy square spiral. Kind of fun to do that because it covers any mistakes Cheesy

I absolutely love these, Mare. The quilted lines seem to make them extra sturdy. That teeny one is super cute.

Thanks for sharing the tute link. I really want to try to make one.

You guys want to hear something funny? My swap partner made me the same basket! Cheesy I'll have to take a pic to show you guys tomorrow. And, out of the 30+ or so swappers, I think we might have been the only two to use that pattern!

ETA: we weren't swapping directly, so I made and received the same pattern but nobody else did both.

Those look great, I love the contrasting fabrics and how they peek over the edge at the top.
