Here is an experiment from this weekend - a selvage basket. The handle is a bias strip that is machine appliqued onto a black triangle. The selvages were sewn onto a muslin triangle with a smaller black triangle added to the bottom.
Voila - a basket block. It finished at about 11 inches and I finished 2 with a couple more started. I'm not sure what I'll do with these, but they were fun and fast to make.
