A few weeks ago I posted a couple of pictures of sunflowers that I was quilting. I couldn't show the whole quilt because it was the quilt for the out-going president of Thumb Butte Quilters' Guild.

She was presented with the quilt yesterday, so I get to share the whole quilt today.

I like the way that the flowers and the rooster are poofy. It gives them some dimension.

There is a hidden dragonfly in the quilting. The rest of the background is a mix of designs from Dustin Farrell, Claudia Pfeil, Nichole Webb, Carla Barrett, Jamie Wallen, and every other teacher that I've taken classes from.  Carla calls it Artistic Freehand. I like that. It makes it sound so classy. I call it "Quilting for Those With a Short Attention Span."

Though they don't show, the quilt has loads of crystals on the sunflowers. The camera just couldn't capture the bling.

I have been privileged to quilt the quilts for two guild presidents this year. This is the quilt for Mountain Top Quilters'.

  1. They're both beautiful quilts, and, of course, wonderfully quilted, but I think the sunflower is my favourite.
