Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
It is a snowy Monday morning and I am in a super up mood! Last night I finished the the quilting for the Road to California quilt and even had time (went to bed at 1:30 AM) to make the first of five sunflowers I am appliquing on the back. Here is a picture:The pattern is from New Zealand designer Ruth Blanchet and is intended for a wall hanging 26 x 34 inches. Since I have lots of space to cover on the back of the quilt, I increased the pattern 200% and my applique of the five sunflowers and eight leaves will be 68 inches tall! Hubby has gone skiing for 3 days in the Catskills so I can eat fast food and sew to my heart's content...oh yeah...I have to sleep and go to work too. Here is the original applique pattern for just this sunflower:As I was finishing up this applique last night, it occurred to me that my daughter is probably expecting a photo for her and her husband on their wedding day on this quilt. Drat! One more thing to do my March 21....
