This cheerful sunflower quilt belongs to Reneta. It is made out of a jelly roll in the 1600 quilt style for the background, with appliqued sunflower centers and stems and prairie points for the petals.
I really enjoyed all the freehand quilting on this one. The background got a freehand leafy/paisley/petal motif that was shared by Wendy over at Ivory Spring. There were similar motifs in the fabric collection, so I thought it worked well.
Each of the sunflowers got a slightly different fill - a stipple, some "3s and es", and echoed teardrop. The outside border got a motif that was taught to me as "onions and garlic". (It kind of looks like a rosebud too.)
Here is a good shot of the back. The quilting shows up pretty well, and I love how two little strips of fabric can add so much interest.
And just to make you a little jealous, this is what I got to enjoy for girls' supper #2 of the summer. We had homemade chocolates for dessert, but I didn't snap a picture of those.
