I love Sunflower

Among my other sewing and quilting projects and lessons, on top of my work, I have managed to finish the sunflower wall hanging last weekend. The original pattern is from Fons and Porter's Love of Quilting Magazine July/August 2010 issue; Sunny Trio by Patrick Lose. I'm not very good at working out mirror images and inexperience in working with templates. So, my version of the wall hanging is slightly different from the published one in the magazine. I have also made a few other mistakes with the batting and when to trim the edges but, luckily, they weren't critical and didn't stop me from finishing of the piece. Nevertheless, I'm pleased and very happy with the result. My neighbour thought they looked more like turtles. Bright yellow turtles, perhaps. :-) !!!
