My local quilt guild invited Pat Sloan to come talk in March. We were challenged at the February meeting to make one of these quilts by the time she came. I pulled charm packs and yardage from my stash, and couldn't decide which to make, so I made both. Both were quilted and bound in time for Pat's visit. The red charm pack was Hot Chilies Batiks by Island batik The blue charm pack was Clear Skies/ Fusions Bloom by Studio RK
Our youngest boy is getting married, and their wedding is centered around sunflowers. I just love sunflowers. Sew I got this great idea I would try to make a quilt with sunflowers. Mind you I haven’t made very many quilts ( just a few) Sew this project is probably a little bigger than I should have bit on..... I found the cutest sunflower on Pinterest. This is it sew far....

I made this quilt for my Granddaughter who is moving into her first apartment. She chose the Fabrícs last year and she finally got the quilt this week for her 21st Birthday. I hope it brings many years of warmth and fond memories of our relationship! The pillow cases were done following MSQC pillow case tutorial and includes a reading pillow with a pocket for a book. The pillow shams were done by following a YouTube tutorial.
Our first Granddaughter, Gracie, graduates from high school. I decided to take some of her favorite T shirts and capsule them in a quilt. Not only that, but added her sports letter, her letterman name, class year and officer award on the quilt. All these memories made for a treasured gift!
