Circle Wallhanging

taught by Debbie Peterson

For the optional scrappy basket you will need the following fabrics.  You may have some pieces left over from making the Crazy Patch Tool Caddy that you can use for some of these pieces.  Cut the following pieces for the basket:

9 assorted fabric pieces cut into 2 ½” squares.  This will be your center section for the basket front once you sew it together into a long strip.
1 piece of upper basket fabric 4 inches x 18 inches
1 piece of lower basket fabric 6 inches x 18 inches
1 piece of lining fabric cut 11 inches x 18 inches
1 piece of batting or fusible fleece cut approximately 12 inches x 19 inches

Optional Binding 2 ½” by approximately 24 inches.  You may make this scrappy as well or totally omit the binding and sew the basket together without binding.  That’s the way I am going to do it from now on.
