Brenda Quintana's Woven Basket

I found out about this wonderful Woven Basket created by Brenda Quintana (yes, it's out of paper!!) last year.  She posted directions at her blog QBee's Quest in THIS POST!  I made one, but since I have a tendency to RUN from templates that require measuring and stuff, I put the directions away until today.  I just had to find it again because at Splitcoast for the new Free for All Challenge , the task was to make a basket or use a basket stamp, and use the colors Certainly Celery, Barely Banana, and Perfect Plum (I substituted PTI's Pale Plum, Spring Moss, and Lemon Tart).  More felted flowers (see earlier post this week), PTI buttons, yellow gingham ribbon, and a little circle tag with the Easter Wishes sentiment from Mixed Messages, PTI.
