Leaning on the Fence
Last September, I relaxed and had fun hand piecing a sunflower block. Cotton batik fabrics were used for the flower and a linen fabric was used at the background sections. As you can see, the block made its way into a quilt where it was machine quilted and hand beaded. It was joined by several other sunflower blocks.
At that time, I had no idea that I would later finish this quilt and enter it in the New Quilts from Old Favorites - Sunflower competition sponsored by the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, KY.
