When Sew Sisters invited me to take the Kona Club Challenge, I jumped at the chance! I was given a number of colour combination options and chose September which consisted of Citrus, Mulberry, Turquoise and Kumquat. Since my tutorial would be published in June, I thought these colours best represented the abundance of flowers blooming in my garden at that time.
I worked on a pattern for my quilted basket but I have a few bugs to work out first.
On this version, the lining fits perfectly and is mostly sewn in by machine with a little slip stitching to finish.
This basket is available in my Etsy shop .
A-Tasket, another yellow basket, and by far, this is my favorite!
The interior and exterior are both quilted and added a split interior pocket.
The exterior fabric is by Riley Blake, “Daisy Cottage” Damask in Daisy and the interior is from Lori Holt’s line, “Millie’s Closet”, Herringbone Coat in Yellow. The basket measures 11″ long x 6″ wide x 8.5″ tall.
I think I’m going to play with Deb Strain’s Spa and Daisy Cottage…
… or maybe Joel Dewberry’s Woodgrain in Vintage Yellow.
According to colour psychology:
“The color yellow relates to acquired knowledge. It is the color which resonates with the left or logic side of the brain stimulating our mental faculties and creating mental agility and perception.
Being the lightest hue of the spectrum, the color psychology of yellow is uplifting and illuminating, offering hope, happiness, cheerfulness and fun.
In the meaning of colors, yellow inspires original thought and inquisitiveness.”
