Mary Lou Hoochy Mama Basket Exchange

Remember this group of Tonga Treats Sugar Batiks and Sketch Deft fabrics that a group of us from Mary Lou Weidman's online yahoo swap group use to make baskets?

Well just before Thanksgiving I got my last basket delivered. It spent more than 20 days back and forth across the U.S. before finally arriving at the doorstep. This first basket is courtesy of Cyndi Strohmier I think.

This one was made by Mary Kate Wilde.

This little beauty is by Micki Groth.

Another rick rack handle one by Sandy Fisher.

This group of four were from Diane Harris.

Mary Greaves made this yellow handed beauty.

Mari Linfesty did the rainbow rick rack basket.

Edie Faile share one with us.

Kathy Garcia used extra wide rick rack and folded it in half, love the scallop effect.

I think Camille Vlasak made this little appliqué basket.

Linn Jencopale made this zig zag rainbow beauty.

Kim Kerschl made a vertical rainbow and added a second blue batik to her background.

This rainbow appliqué handle basket was my contribution.

Maree Whiteley made this whimsical pedestal rainbow one for us.

Mary Evangelisti made this stripped basket.

Now to figure out how to put them all together. This is going to be fun. Thanks to everyone especially Mary Lou for spurring us on to get out of the box with our creative baskets. I love them all!
