A few weeks ago, I joined a quilt group at my local quilt shop, Quilters Haven. The club is held on Thursday evenings, and it's great to be able to meet other quilters and have some company when I'm sewing! Georgie, who works at Quilters Haven, had been busy making this sunflower wallhanging, and tonight she brought it along to show us.....
.....it really is lovely, and the 3-D petals are very realistic. The centres are embellished with Suffolk Puffs and buttons. This looks great Georgie.....
.....I love sunflowers too, and I made this wallhanging on a class at Quilters Haven about 4 years ago, and it was hung up in the hardwear store in Wickham Market during an open-air quilt show.....
...I named this wall-hanging "Stormy Sunflowers", and this pattern is from the book Stitch-and-Split-Applique by Jayme Crow and Joan Segna. The leaves are embellished with beads, and I copied the leaf motif for free-motion quilting in the borders.
