Clothesline baskets

The other weekend, our local longarm group got together.  It was a time to discuss our issues , show-and-tell some of our projects, eat a wonderful potluck lunch, and have fun learning something new. 

Debra, who hosted the gathering, showed us how to make fabric-wrapped, clothesline baskets!  It was easy and fun, my kind of activity!  I was hooked!

Here's my bowl started!

A rare photo of me!

I actually used leftover fabric strips, mostly from backings that I tore to square up.

Thanks for the fun day, Debra!  I'll definitely be making a few more!
