WIPs With Friends

It's Wednesday again, time for WIPs with friends.  If we can get 15 links I will have a giveaway!

I decided that I wanted to try making some of the one hour baskets.  
The original pattern can be found on Craftsy, but I had downloaded it when it was free on a website.  I decided that I wanted to use up some scraps and piece mine.  
Since the dimensions worked for using 2.5" squares and I just happen to have a bazillion of those laying around, squares it was.

I pieced the panels for the outside of the baskets.  
I did not even think about quilting them with the first one I made, but I did quilt the last 3.  
I made one with someone very specific in mind but I can't share who as she reads my blog. 
 I have the three prepped and ready to sew together.  
I did a test basket with the red and white 
(the one I never thought about quilting). 


 I used the red and white fabric I just bought for the lining.  


As I said I have three more ready to sew.  This one was left overs from a wedding quilt.


Mostly left over from several wedding quilts


Left overs from a graduation quilt.  


Hopefully I will be able to get these sewn and ready to gift in the near future. 
 Which one is your favorite?
