Here's my contribution on Lyn's Round Robin. Her theme is for a summer floral basket.
I found this basket in Elly Sienkiewicz book "The Best of Baltimore Beauties" I reversed appliquéd the tear drops in the center putting a gold fabric behind and then appliquéd the remaining basket onto the background block (which was prepared by Lyn). I have set it on point... heee heee. She said she wanted to be 'surprised'. I have left the top unstitched so others can tuck stems, etc., into the top. I used freezer paper underneath method. I'm the first person to get her box.
