A Trio of Mask Baskets for Lisa

My friend Lisa asked if I could make a trio of mask baskets for her and her daughter and I was apply to oblige. Luckily I had a beautiful day for taking the pictures.
She asked if I could possibly use Blue and/or Teal as those are her daughter's favorite colors and nothing overly floral.  I think these fit the bill nicely.

For the first one I chose a Blue print fabric with random stars.
The lining was a Cream marble print.
I don't have Teal in my stash so this was as close as I could get.  The outside fabric was leftover from my Charm Pack Shuffle quilt I designed for Moda Bake Shop in
I found a Blue mall leaf type print that worked for the lining.
The last one turned out so well.  The fabric for the outside is from a fat quarter that I picked up from somewhere and never found a good use for, until now.
For the lining I used a White tone on tone that has large intersection circles.
Here they are together, ready for their new home.
Lisa just happened to be in town (she's from the area and was visiting her mom) just as I finished them so she was able to pick them up instead of them having to be mailed to her.  She loved them and I'm happy knowing that they are doing exactly what my set are doing for us.....keeping the masks organized.

Hi Phylklos. Unfortunately your reply came through as a No Reply Blogger so I can't reply to you directly. No I'm not going to be offering a pattern for the baskets. I used this pattern to make them

How nice of you to make something that someone else wants/needs. Generally speaking, I find few people who want or need my homemade items. No doubt you're feeling good about these finishes.
