Once you have the technique down, you will want to make these baskets in all different sizes. We suggest using a stabilizing form instead of batting. We like the additional support it provides along the sides.
The binding detail along the top edge is just another way for you to add a splash of color to your project. We love the look of a continuous binding but understand that it can be tricky to get the measurement exactly right. That’s why we love this video from Heirloom Creations. In it, Sarah shows you just how easy it is to make the final connection on any quilt binding. This technique can be used on so many projects, from mega quilts to patchwork storage baskets. Let’s take a look and learn how she does it.
