Just Takes Two

 Here are my blocks for mid month. It was so nice they were easy and fairly quick to get together.
I loved the way to the basket block was assembled.
 Applique 4 handles on a background square. Add triangles to make the baskets.
 Add strips that have red triangles added to the ends.

Add background triangles to the bottom of baskets, trim and ta-da! A very unique way to make this block. I loved it!!
