Creating Breezy Sunflowers
A couple of Summers ago my neighbor Kat showed up at my door with three Sunflower Plants. They grew into beautiful Sunflowers, that never failed to make me smile. I am always on the hunt for patterns that will show off my hand marbled and hand dyed fabrics. Breezy Sunflower is perfect for that. It always takes a bit of time to select just the right fabric. Hand Marbled Sun (two different designs), Hand Marbled Chocolate Freestyle, Hand Dyed Chartreuse and Hand Dyed Forest is what I started with.
Quilting the Sunflowers
As I wanted to show off the Marbled Fabric, I chose to only do very simple quilting. Found an Art Deco book in my library, clean simple lines was what I was shooting for.

Marbled Fabric gives the Sunflower motion, depth and life. It is always satisfying when a creation turns out better than you thought possible.
