More Quilted "Buckets"

I enjoyed making the quilted Easter Baskets and thought I could improve on the design a bit.  We're heading to Hawaii soon and I always like to have a gift for our caretaker...thought this Hawaiian themed basket would be perfect.  I silkscreened the hibiscus designs on white fabric, then sewed them into a patchwork pattern with a contrasting navy cotton.  I quilted it using felt so the piece would have some structure and sit by itself without collapsing.  I lined them with lightweight cotton.  Since I made so many hibiscus squares I was able to make a second basket (always good to have a hostess gift on hand)
