Sunflowers in Wool . . . . .

This was a long time comin'.


Those that have seen me at shows this Spring saw a block here or a block there.  I finally have the whole top put together.

The four inside blocks are already stitched with only 4 colors of Valdani thread.  I put the borders on this past week and fused on the outside border sunflowers and leaves.


The pattern is "Sunflowers" by Primitive Gatherings.  I have kits available.  I hand dyed all the wool myself.  The black background is flannel that I bought from Hancock Fabrics and is NOT included in the kit.

I will be taking the kits (and the patterns) with me to my shows but if you aren't within visiting distance and would like a kit (or a pattern), just shoot an email to me.  Either quiltmarket@comporium.net (my blogger email) or cathi@shakerwoodwoolens.com (my business email).


Speaking of shows, Dear Hubby and I are leaving Thursday morning for our farthest trek yet. . . .Annapolis, Maryland.  The Annapolis Quilt Guild's show will be held this Saturday and Sunday (June 11th and 12th) at Annapolis High School.  We have been to Annapolis many times as one of my brother's went to the Naval Academy.  I hope we have time to take in the historic district.  Just can't soak up enough of the architecture.

Blessings, Cathi

Just gorgeous! Two of my very favorite things...wool applique, and sunflowers! I think I might have to add that quilt to my very long "to do" list.

A big wow! I like the sunflower quilt a lot. Looks like it is a bigger piece.
I was in Annapolis just briefly and I don;t think we stopped anywhere. Looked very interesting. That is a long ways to go for a show but it sounds like a vacation too. I hope you do well with your wools.
