work in progress... top secret quilt
Here are the first sneak peaks of the super top secret project that required decoy projects. This quilt was totally on a need to know basis. Cone of silence. Because it is none other than a graduation gift for our girl. Daughter is a fan of sunflowers. She has always loved them. Husband painted sunflowers on her door when she was a little squeak. I made her dresses from sunflower fabric. We planted sunflowers for her. She still asks if we have planted sunflowers. So here is the beginning of her sunflower kitchen window quilt.
I had a lot of sunflower prints. Many were leftovers from little girl sundresses from years gone by. I also bought some beautiful new sunflower prints to round out the selection. There is also a print that is reminiscent of sunflower seeds. It helped ground the florals. The modern sunflower prints helped make the quilt more up to date. At least I think so. Several of the prints were fussy cut to really show them off. The frames are Kona black and do you think I can remember which yellow I bought? Nope, cannot remember. I really like it because it shouts that it is Daughter's quilt. It shouts it from the roof tops. Husband likes it too. He loves high contrast fabrics in a quilt. This one is definitely high contrast!
