Sunflower And Blooms

Project Description

What was your source for this quilting project? Other Tell us more about what inspired you. My love for sunflowers and warm colors. What are you most proud of? This wall hanging was my first attempt at hand quilting. I really like the relaxing and simple nature of hand quilting. I was pleased with the way the project turned out. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I would advise a novice hand quilter to start with a panel. A panel is pre- designed and allows you the time to concentrate on perfecting the hand quilting technique.

What you will need

  • Sunflower panel
  • warm and natural batting
  • quilting thread
  • thimble and good quality hand quilting needle.

Q&A with eeka

Surfside6 asked:
Really caught my eye! Love the big pieces - You mention hand quilting, as in applique? This look like nice size pieces to learn on.
eeka answered:
Thanks! This project was one whole fabric panel, no applique on this one. I used a panel to allow me to concentrate solely on my hand quilting technique. Absolutely loved the whole process, very relaxing once I was comfortable with the technique.
