How to Craft Hanging Baskets in Quilting
The guide to learning how to craft hanging baskets rests in your
ability to learn, listen, hear, and think while you create your design.
However, some people find it difficult to learn crafting rules;
therefore, in this article I will do my best to make the steps as
simple as possible. I’ve designed the May hanging basket for your
convenience. In addition, I have chosen this particular craft, since it
is one of the easier ones to make. I believe keeping it simple can help
you to grow in craft, and assist you when you are ready to take on
Before you can make your hanging basket, you will need to gather your
supplies, materials, and outlines of your craft. The article is geared
to help those creating the May basket complete their project.
Therefore, if you are not familiar with supplies, tools, materials,
etc, you will need to locate articles to direct you through the first
steps. For those of you, who have read previous works, continue to
craft your hanging basket. Briefly, we can go over the previous steps,
such as tracing the handles of your basket before moving to your
The next step after you have cut your strips is to trace the handles of
your basket. To start use your print fabric (off-white) and cut out
your rectangles. You will need six to create the A rectangle, which
should measure out to 5 ˝ x 8 ˝ inches once you finish cutting. You
will fold, mark, and create the ending of your pattern up to 200%. Now
you are ready to make the blocks to build your basket.
How to create blocks for your basket:
Use your darker shades of brown print and cut six narrow pieces at 1 x
22 inches. You want to break off the cut pieces however so that it is
equivalent to ˝ inch. This is your narrow pieces (Strips) that make up
#1-C in your blocks. You will need 1 ˝ x 8 ˝ inches to make the
B-building blocks, cut eighteen narrow pieces (Strips) to finish. Use
your lighter shades of brown to create your B-block. (Sounds like we
are in prison or something) The blocks are customary in craft language.
You will need five narrow pieces of fabric, cutting out 1 ˝ x 22 inches
each. This will make up your #2 C-narrow pieces. To create your
H-Borders cut two narrow pieces of your lighter brown fabric at 2 ˝ x
29 ˝ inches. Now, cut 2 ˝ x 28 ˝ inches of narrow pieces. The cuts will
finish your #1 border along the side. Start the narrow pieces in your
Begin stitching the C-block, using the darker browns, stitching six so
that it meets with the lighter shades of brown in your #2 narrow
pieces, which should be around five at this point. That is, you should
have around five blocks of lighter browns created.
Gather your tools. You will need a transparent ruler and a rotary
cutter. I should’ve mentioned the tools, materials, etc; that you would
need in this article, yet again, the information is outlined to finish
the May basket. Using your ruler measure 1 ˝ inch expansive, or width
and cut 12 narrow pieces to make your C block. Use the two narrow
pieces (C) to three narrow B pieces and create six blocks to finish the
bottom of your basket. Use the darker brown fabric and cut six narrow
pieces on your creation. You should have cut 1 x 13 inches to craft the
Use your narrow pieces you cut to create your basket and put them on
your ironing board, level to the board. Your pieces should be on the
left side, facing down. Fold the pieces at the longer ends so that it
meets in the middle. You want to press the fabric. DO NOT IRON. Rather
press your material so that it will not expand.
You want to mark the Rectangle A. use a craft pin to do so. Mark the
area so that it meets with your handles that you traced earlier. Mark
the interior side of your handles with a craft pin along the edges. Use
coordinated thread to sew the handles and use your blind stitching
mechanisms to complete your task. At the bottom of your basket, you
want to accomplish stitching a handle to your block. You are now ready
to make your flowers.
