These two projects are done. Soon they will be on their way to Mom. We both took a workshop late last year with my Mom's sewing guild, Quilters by the Bay. The one below could be used for either a table runner or a wall hanging. The technique is similar to a bulls eye, but instead flowers. In browsing the internet I learned they are called French roses. HERE
is a link to several on Pinterest if you are interested.
I have been referring to them as Sunflowers because of the fabric that was used. Kerry did a wonderful job with the quilting. It allows them to ravel, but just enough since she stitched around each layer of the flower (there are four). Stipple in the background and a nice flower pattern in the borders.
It is difficult to see the ravel, but after one wash with a pair of flip flops (Mom's suggestion) along with 20 minutes in the dryer there is a ravel!
I'm working more on Starburst. Enjoy your week ahead =^.^=
Those are very cheerful little pieces. I have seen that technique, but have never tried it. Part of the trick is to have a good quilter, which you do!
