A special friend of mine had her birthday at the weekend, and this is what I made her.

This is my take on the Juniper Basket, by my uber talented quilty friend, Svetlana of SOTAK Handmade.

Svetlana’s patterns are always so well written, and she includes 2 sizes for this cute basket.  I made the small size.

I’ve been  doing a little EPP (English Paper Piecing) in the evenings, using up some pretty Tilda scraps.

I know my friend likes Tilda too so it was a no brainer when it came to choosing fabrics!

I quilted some Essex Yarn Dyed Linen (Flax) for the exterior – always a great partner for Tilda!

I think this would a perfect basket for a knitting or crochet project, or  even  some  EPP!!

Happy sewing!
