This is Lorna’s Sunny Days quilt, by The Quilt Patch and I actually helped her piece and appliqué this quilt top 5 years ago, that was before I got my longarm. Lorna hand stitched around all the appliqué pieces with a button hole stitch and it really adds to the folksy feel of the quilt. I knew it had to be stippled and also have some loops and stars as that goes with the feel of the country style quilt. I then added bead board quilting to the outer border.
I stitched in the ditch around all the appliqué and added pebbles to the center of the sunflowers and veins to the leaves. Quilters Dream Blend batting and 5 different So Fine thread.
We have been getting some well needed rain in the evenings and the other night I noticed a rainbow at sunset. This photo was taken at 10:30pm so the sky was pink.
