couldn't delay it any longer...

Yes, that's right!!!! I first thought of posting about the Frog Basket in a day or two but couldn't wait ;-)

Finishing the basket has been quite a challenge! You know, the kind of things that, when you're done, you feel like you can do anything from now on!!!! ...Until the next project.... LOL

Let me tell you that, though it is far from perfect, I am very happy with how it turned out.


Hope you like it too!

PS : As I have posted twice today, don't miss my previous post about the quilt exhibition in Brouage.

Edit June 14 : To answer emails I have been receiving, you can find theFrog Basket model in Yoko's Saito's latest book, Past and Present, My Quilting Life, published in a bilingual edition (French and English) by Quiltmania.

You can also see Corinne's finished basket and Cécile's one on their blogs. (Click on the names for the link)

Thank you for all you nice comments... you've made my day ;-))

Until later,
