Patchwork Bucket

This Patchwork Bucket has been made from my scrap bin.  I used the tutorial at 1/4" Mark (www.quarterinchmark.blogspot.com) with a couple of changes of my own.  I used 3.5" squares to piece the main body and I think next time I will only use three rows so it won't be quite so tall.  I also used my Cut A Round ruler from Phillips Fiber Art to cut my bottom circle - it worked great!  I left 1/4" or so of the lining showing at the top so the bucket has a bound look.  I quilted 1/2" lines horizontally along the body and cross-hatched 1/2" lines on the bottom.  The final size is approx 12.25" tall and 8.5" across.
