I have admired Carrie's beautiful applique projects for years, always swooning over her lovely work.

When she shared with me that she was a "tester "of quilt patterns, I knew I would love for her to test and review my new "Spring Basket" pattern.   (You can see my blog post of Spring Basket here).

You must jump over to Carrie's blog, see more detailed pictures, read her review - -  AND - - best of all -- get in on the #giveway of two "Spring Basket" patterns.

Thank you Carrie for sharing your lovely version of "Spring Basket"and hosting a giveaway!  

You are one talented lady -- not to mention a real gem!

Happy Days!

Karen
