another divided basket

Welcome to finish it up Friday!

Last Saturday I had the opportunity to take a class from the ever-so-lovely Anna of Noodlehead. She taught her divided basket class at the Minneapolis Modern Quilt Guild. It was wonderful to have a full day dedicated to sewing with few other distractions. You know it's bad when you have to take a class so you have time to sew! (hahaha!)
The divided basket is a fun pattern to sew up! I actually took my time for once, making deliberate decisions every step of the way--rather than trying to speed my way through things and try to make 100 of them. It was a nice change of pace! I also liked having sewing time with friends...my fabric choices were better because I had their input. It was a fun, fun day and I have an awesome divided basket to show for it. I'm already using it for scrap storage, which, I am sure, comes as no surprise!
 
I had a few other finishes this week, but they are gifts that I will be hand delivering when I am at quilt market in Houston (!!!) so I will have to wait to share them next week.
 
Now, it's your turn! Please link up your finishes. Thanks, as always, for joining me for finish it up Friday!

I love these baskets too but have you ever made a pattern of Anna's that you didn't like?! Love all the fabrics you chose :-)

Love the fabrics that you chose. I made my first Noodlehead Divided Basket for a baby gift over the summer. What a wonderful pattern. Lucky you to get to take a class with Anna!
