If you loved it, then you should have put a handle on it

Beyoncé, forgive me - I couldn't resist!

This months Craftsy BOM block with Jinny Beyer was a Cherry Basket with handle. I also has appliqué flowers but apparently we have to wait for later in the year for those.

The piecing of the block was fairly straight forward but this month we also had bias bars to consider. I haven't made bias bars before (bias? Eek!) so had to get so Prym bias bars to assist. These things are clever. I must find out what else I can use them for.

The handle was appliquéd on to the block with some fairly basic (for me at least) blind hemming. 

The basket looks a little naked without flowers but hopefully they'll come soon. Roll on April!
