SUNFLOWER MORNING

 SUNFLOWER MORNING
32 X 20 INCHES
(Stretched on Stretcher bars) 

 I finished this art quilt today.  I love making Sunflower quilts and do it all free hand.  I love that part of it because it is so much fun to just cut out each piece without much thought other than color and grouping them just right.
 As you can see I made these flowers at different stages of their growth.  Some are fully open while others like these are just opening.


I found this hand dyed background fabric with rays of light going thru it and though it complimented these flowers well.  Something different from the blue you usually see them featured on too.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.  I will start a Wisconsin farm scene next but it will most likely take a while as I am also working on my flower beds.  I moved into this house a year ago with my husband and best friend, Mike.  He and I have been making it our own since and still have a few things left to do like paint some rooms and new floor and appliances for the kitchen.  Outside we just built a new deck and I am working of new flower beds around the house.  The previous owner did not like flowers I guess as there were only bushes and trees in the yard.  So it is a much larger project than it would have been if there were existing beds.   I love doing it though so no problem there.
