48 x 60 inches
I quilted the sprouts blocks with straight vertical lines, used the wavy serpentine stitch in all the grass green areas, and stitched around each sunflower block at the top.
Along the way, I was trying to decide what I should use for binding. Should I match the green? do something scrappy? find something in my stash that would work?
Finally I choose this pretty dot fabric that I purchased recently from Bernie's shop, Needle and Foot Fine Fabrics.
"Floralish" - perfect! It looks great with the green
and I like it all the way around.
The backing is the last of the wide backing I also bought from Bernie earlier this year, all about friendship. This is the third quilt I've used this for on the back.
"A friend is one of the nicest things you can have,
and one of the best things you can be."
This best part about quilting a quilt myself is how much fun I have looking back on all the favorite scraps I used to make it. I never could decide which block was my favorite, but I do love this center section.
How about those socks?!
I think these sprouts and sunflowers are destined to be hung somewhere in our house, but for now they're hanging from the top of our closet!
Thanks for following along as I worked on this lo-o-o-ng Work in Progress!
