This is amazing! Can you tell me, and pardon my sewing ignorance... what kind of needle do you use to get through all those layers and cording? I want to make sure I have the right ingredients before I attempt this! Thanks so much.

KaHolly said...

Very sweet! Great job on the tutorial!

Great job V on the tutorial and idea! I will be making baskets as soon as I am done with baby quilts for my Lenten project.

The Kings said...

i just wanted to say that you rule on moda. i scrolled through the rest of the page and your first moda project had 49 comments! the closest one to that was 27. you rock!

ginger said...

That is really cute! I hope you don't mind, but I shared it in my Google Reader items.

Nanci said...

I'm in love! I may be forced to make one for my daughter's Easter basket.

Natalie said...

I LOVE this idea. I am going to buy some fabric to get this one done in time. I also love that you can make them different types of bowls but using the same techniques.
I love all your tutorials!

You go girl- another Moda! Awesome! The basket is adorable. I am sure my partner in crime (Marlene) will be whipping these out shortly. I can't sew. Wait, I won't say can't- I don't sew yet!

Jessica said...

I love it! Perhaps this is what I need to do with my fabulous new swanky honey bun. (oooo - that sounded a little dirty!)

lisa said...

Oh, I SO do! Something else I'm going to have to add to my make list!

KellyO. said...

Okay! So I copy and pasted the whole tutorial into my "blogger projects to do" file!!!! Now I just need a honey bun and I'm going to get busy!
Thank you!

Inspired Kara said...

This is absolutely DARLING!!!!!!

Camille said...

LOVE it! Is there anything you can't do? So cute.

Jen O said...

OK Vanessa this is totally random, and I found out about you in a crazy way. My friend Jessica is the one who won the honey bun giveaway and she put a link to your blog on hers, so I checked it out. I'm inspired by your energy, and i couldn't stop reading your entries. After scanning a few posts from way back when, I saw you live in Loa. No way! I thought. Could that be Loa, Utah??? My parents are Don and Marsha C., my mom being my quilting/sewing inspiration. In last year's post about the fair, you put a photo of her quilt...the one you didn't know who made it (with the random stars and a mariners compass in the middle). Felicia has also quilted a top for me too. I love your photos of Loa...I used to spend summers there when my grandparents lived there (in the same house where my parents are). I miss it. Small world. I hope I can meet you next time I'm visiting. My mom has a quilt retreat every September. You should come!! Sorry for the long comment - nice to "meet" you!

Anne said...

I had an easter basket like this when I was a little girl. Until your blog I wasn't able to ever find instructions on how to make these! your blog rocks! (and the moda bake shop!) thanks for bringing back such a great memory!

Andrea said...

I like it! So cute and colorful.

rachel griffith said...

omg vanessa.
see what happens when i stay in bed sick all day...i miss things like this!!!

you amaze me girl!!!

Melly said...

YOU'RE AMAZING!!!!!

Dawn said...

OH, so cute!!

Jeremy.Celeste said...

You are so TALENTED! What a fun project to do!

Heather said...

I made a basket just like that at girls camp when I was a beehive! Awwe the memories!!

Tanya said...

oh my gosh....i use to make these with my mom when i was litte. i totally forgot about doing them. i love them! you're awesome!

Amy said...

Um okay, V. I looked at the tutorial and that basket seems to be extraordinarily labor intensive. Like I was getting all shaky just watching you. Sewing together 4,400 little squares and then handsewing your brains out?!
Don't get me wrong here, I love the basket, but you've completely overestimated my abilities.
Maybe for my sake could you just do some kind of tutorial for a nice bow to put on a store-bought Easter basket? Or just show pictures of yourself eating candy or something?
You blow my mind. And intimidate me more than any other person on the planet.

Mel said...

OK, I hope you don't get vertigo from the pedestal I've put you on!!

You are so inspiring!! Thanks so much for sharing!!

the Material Girls Quilts said...

I have seen hot pads, for a table, made with this method, but not a basket. Neat.
