Sunflowers and Cathedral Windows

Sunflowers for SybillThis one is for Throw Back Thursday. I came across the picture of my “Sunflowers” quilt that I made for my daughter, Sybill. It’s not a very good picture but it seems to be the only digital one I have. I think I made it around 2000. She loved Sunflowers so much that as soon as it was finished it became hers. The petals of the Sunflowers are three dimensional like I use in the Cathedral window process with four folded sides.

Sultry Sunflower

The  two inner sides of the points are rolled and stitched into curves. I think the blocks are 15″ each so the quilt must be around 60″ square.

“Sultry Sunflowers” is the same idea but with 9″ blocks and only 8 petals as opposed to the 12 petals in “Sunflowers”. It’s probably 40″ square.

Enjoy!
