One of the things I love about miniatures is how many
different creative options they offer for display.  Aren't
they fun on these little fabric baskets?

Like many quilters, I love the internet and the
wonderful selection of free patterns so many gifted
designers generously share.  This fabric basket by
Pink Penguin is one of my favorites.  Click

visit Pink Penguin's blog.

This project uses the 13-Square foundation from
Miniatures in Minutes.  Click here to download a pdf
instruction guide for the pieced section of the basket.

Notepads
Pink Penguin's Fabric Baskets
These notepads are one of my absolute
favorite ways to showcase a miniature
quilt.  And they make great gifts, not only
for the women in your life, but men as
well (and isn't that a challenge).
