Have you ever noticed that your favorite project is the one you are working on now? That's how I feel with my blocks. My favorite is always the most recent. This one showcases a picture of my son from 10+ years ago.
This pink silk is from an old kimono. I picked up a grab bag of large squares of vintage kimono fabric at the 2011 San Antonio quilt show. A friend mentioned that my block was looking a little sad, so I embellished this piece by stitching over the basket and making little tulle flowers with melted edges. The flowers are about 3/4" each.
