Sunflowers for Kristin

Kristin considers herself a beginning quilt-maker, but I think she did a fabulous job with this sunflower quilt.  If it looks crooked, trust me, it’s not her.  My design wall leans against the wall, about a foot away at the bottom, making it dip and bow so pictures of quilts that I hang on there look distorted.  Her quilt came to me as straight as could be, quite an accomplishment for a beginning quilter!

Since this quilt would be used daily on her own bed, I did an allover, Edge to Edge (E2E) quilting design.  To go with the sunflower blocks, I stitched sunflowers and leafy vines all over it.
