N Is For Noodlehead - My Latest Divided Basket

Hello, Friends - 
I've just got time to check in for a quick post today!

I've got photos of my latest installment
in the series of Divided Baskets

For this version,
I used some of the orchid prints in
Heather Ross's Briar Rose line.

{Here is the back view of the basket...}

This pretty basket is a gift
to welcome a lovely new baby girl!
I chose to decorate the basket
with her initial...N.

I used a panel from Lakehouse Dry Goods,
printed in bronze to look like cross-stitch.

I had a bit of Jennifer Paganelli fabric
from one of her early lines called Bell Bottoms.
I liked the way it looked
as an accent for the pocket and handles.

{I love blending unexpected prints from unrelated fabrics!}

I really love making these baskets for new moms.
They add a pretty storage option
for little diapers, little books,
little socks and shoes,
and so much more.

Look closely at the Briar Rose prints...
do you see them???

That's right...SHAMROCKS!
They fit right in with this month's

Have you made something with shamrocks, too?
Don't forget to add your photos to the Flickr group!

Until next time...happy stitching!
