Sunflower Quilt-A-Long

Some of you may recall that I have been following a Quilt-a-long being hosted by Lori Kennedy at 'The Inbox Jaunt' to make a 'Sunflower Quilt'. The quilt has lots of different free motion quilting designs to try so was just perfect for me to do some more practise. Instruction for the last section to be completed in the QAL was given this last week and I have now finished my quilting and bound my quilts.



I was quilting two quilts the first made from some hand-dyed fabric which I won in a giveaway from Mary Anne at Magpie's Mumblings and which I thought would be the perfect fabric for a sunflower sampler.




I am really pleased with this little quilt now it is finished.  At first I thought it was going to be too cramped as the fabric was smaller than Lori had recommended for the quilt but, I adjusted the sizes a little and it has worked out very well. I even managed to quilt my name in the corner! 




The second was using a piece of solid yellow fabric (sorry the photographs aren't brilliant, the Winter light isn't easy to take photos in!)  As you can see, this is a little larger and it was a lot of fun trying out some different threads.



I am very happy with them both.

  2. And Sew you should be! They both came out beautiful. I use Lori's designs for practice, too. I stitched her sailboat sampler and it came out so cute, I did it twice, like you. Well done!
