Pattern Description:

I love Easter and spring in general. The idea for creating baskets in a circle, much like my designs for crinoline circle doilies was inspired with the spring theme. But more than Easter, this is perfect for Mother's Day too.

Over all, its a unique design with a lot of color but other ideas include using this as a candle doily. Set votives inside the basket handles! Use colors better suited to your tastes. Use the same color for each basket. A different color for all the butterflies and lastly use variegated for the flowers. It's really a versatile piece. Make just the baskets for coasters if desired.
