Sophie's (Slow) Progress

March Pick for a Lovely FInish

My challenge is back up on the design wall.  Some progress has been made and I think I have the rest of the design worked out. The fabric around the finished pieces are standing in for sections yet to be made.  The pale gold at the top is the vintage tablecloth that I am using for this quilt–it gave me fits in the flower appliqué ... but that led me to try a new technique for preparing the appliqué pieces which meant I had fulfilled the challenge requirement to try something new.  It was win-win because I really do like the way the appliqué turned out the second time around :-)

The appliqué sunflowers were from an old "easy appliqué" book--I changed the stems and added the leaves to make them look a bit more like the sunflower volunteers along the walk outside my studio.
