a tuscan inspired sunflower quilt ~

morning salutations people!

ahhh… one more project off the sewing machine, and into the mail. this was a special commissioned piece, and i love how it turned out.  i put about twenty hours into this piece…  and it began with very basic sunflower shapes i drew, cutting them from vicki’s hand dyed fabrics, and then adding brown velvet for the flower centers.  

then ~ time for some thread action!  free motion, bobbin play, and {lots} of quilting! {yay}  this was a very large piece by special request, at 55″ long and 15″ wide.

getting there… bit by bit, and stitch by stitch:

and completely finished:

{and the puppies we’re anxiously waiting to see it too!} LOL 

finished with free motion couching, where i excitedly placed a beautiful hand dyed yarn, as well as another accent of flashy, and yet subtle “double framing” finish applying razzle dazzle thread on the inside edge, alongside the yarn, to complete the framed finish on this beautiful piece of artwork.

soli deo gloria!  
thanks for coming by!

  1. Your work is gorgeous & very fascinating. Such a wonderful gift you have with thread & textiles. Thanks for sharing your gift with us.

  2. It is always fascinating: First I'm think, the table runner is fine, but only "ok". But by being quilted it turns into a really, really amazing table runner!!! 🙂 I would like to have more time for quilting, but there is a job with a 42,5+hours-week…
