    oh my, this looks like it took a lot of work! how special to have those squares mean so much. I have a collection of my grandmother’s silk scarves that i’ve been wanting to do something with, but i havent been able to commit to anything specific just yet. (they’re too fragile for a bag or a quilt.) someday, i will have something to remind me of her. great job, its beautiful.
