Sunflower Quilt

I have been working on this quilt since early summer and it is finally done! I love it too.. it is too loud for most people, but I just love the oranges and 'body' of the design. It was the most fun to play with. The hang ups with it were completely machanical. Sewing machine broke, couldn't find a fabric to use for the back of it (as you can see that was fixed with the loudest fabric yet... I love it!), sewing machine broke again, then Logan decided not to sleep for a few months. lol... so it took a long time, but man... it is beautiful all finished and ironed.

I am thrilled to be done with it.

There are fabrics in this quilt from long before I was born. One of my favorites is the yellow with orange flowers just above the leaf in the center right. (There is a second square, finishing off the peice, under the flower and the red checker square in the center.) I have no idea when it was made, but it has been in my mom's stash in a 11X5 inch square for my entire life memory, at least. I have always loved it. When she gave it to me I promised myself I would put it in something worthy of the cuteness and creativity of the design.

I think I did it justice.

I am really enjoying looking at this quilt all finished. :D

And look at this cute little baby butt! He hasn't really walked any more than he did the day he turned 9 months, three weeks ago. 2 steps here, 3 steps there. But man, he can stand forever now... and loves standing next to his favorite love... the vaccuum. He follows it around going "ummmm... ummmmm..." pushing a block or one of his little Chevron cars while I vaccuum the house to keep him from tasting all the wonderful floor crunchies.

It is pretty much the cutest thing ever.

Val, where do you sell your creations?

Val said...

I don't have a specific spot as I let all my time run out at the stores I had over the last year (having baby, then baby not sleeping, doesn't lend to creativity or being productive. lol!) But, I used to sell at a couple local shops (more clothes than quilts, more expensive items don't sell as well), and then I had an Etsy Store... I should revamp... but for now, I just sell via people's interest on the internet.

If you would like this quilt, feel free to email me, bluerosemama@hotmail.com... I am not doing customs this time of year. But anything I do put up for sale will be here... or if I should get my Etsy store back together, then I will post that here as well.

Thank you for your interest!!
