    Got the pattern for the baskets from a brochure at Joann's, and made the first throw pillow. The second one, with the white background was a sample try at a Carol Doaks paper piecing pattern. So, I decided not to do a whole quilt, but I quilted it and turned the block into a throw pillow.

    The block itself is 12 x 12, until I added the border

    Both pillows are really nice!! That's the best way to try a block to see if you want to make a quilt!

    I just picked up the free pattern for the basket pillow yesterday at Joann's. I hope my pillow turns out half as lovely as yours!

    Mrs. Alshhadeh,
    If you go to www.caroldoaks.com , she has free paper piecing patterns you can print out and use. The second pillow is just called Beginner Block. I think she had several blocks of different flowers.

    I just love your throw pillows. I wonder where I could get the pattern now to make them.
