It's way too windy to hang quilts for photography today, so I improvised by draping the quilt on my porch furniture. The porch worked pretty well, except for the pesky lovebugs that kept getting in the way.
I wanted to have flowers quilted in the baskets, to mimic the original quilting idea suggested by Anita Shackelford in her pattern. Cindy quilted sunflowers in the triangles and cross-hatching in the basket base.
The sunflowers were quilted to mimic the sunflower petals and the flower centers were cross-hatched to mimic sunflower seeds.
Sunflowers and leaves in the borders.
Cindy scattered lots of whimsical touches throughout the quilt. Here are two bees buzzin'.
A hummingbird. It's almost like playing a hidden objects game!
I need to stitch down the hanging sleeve and the quilt will be ready for display. My hubby built me a new quilt hanging rack especially for this quilt. Hope to have pictures soon!
