A Fabric Basket

What do you do with left over blocks?

Do you make them into cushions, bags, or something else?

Sometimes, when I am designing projects, I have sample blocks left over. I had a block left from the Newlands table runner pattern, which I thought would make a lovely fabric basket or tray to compliment the table runner. It can have many uses from a bread basket to a cutlery and napkin tray.

The basket or tray can be made to any size square or rectangle by adjusting the length of the borders. The sides can be made shallower or deeper by changing the width of the borders.

Download instructions -Fabric Tray from the free content section of the website.

It is a lovely project to use up those odd blocks. I hope you enjoy it.

Due to unforeseen circumstances I have had to change the date for the Newlands Table Runner workshop to Wednesday 24th February. If you would like to join the online day class please message me.
