~ A Basket Case ~

This little quilt ... I named the pattern "hangin' in there" ... is screaming "Spring."

This is actually the second quilt I made using this same pattern, because I couldn't really be satisfied until I spruced her up with these fun colors.

Each basket switches around the fabrics ...

... and yet those polk-dot green leaves stay the same.

My favorite fabric was a little fat quarter I picked up who-knows-where that I used in the corner squares ...

 ... and then fussy-cut, for petals here ...

... there ...

... and everywhere.

There may be a little rain in my future this weekend, but I have officially declared spring ... sprung.

Any bright colors in your neck of the woods?
