What better way to celebrate the first day of Summer than to change the quilt on our bed to Summer Sunflowers! According to my notes I finished this July 21, 2005 and the pattern came from the Holiday Crafts Magazine/ Better Homes and Gardens Fall/Winter 1996.
The sunflower centers are one inch blocks in all kinds of browns and dark golds, pieced, then cut in a circle and appliqued over the petals. The flower petals are Dresden Plate. This is the only quilt I ever put prairie points around the edge. The red sunflower fabric I originally purchased to make a dress for our daughter when she was 7 or 8 years old, but I never got around to making that dress. Suddenly, it seemed, she grew up. By the time she was in High School I figured I cold do something else with that fabric.
Do you change the quilts in your home to celebrate the seasons? What quilt is on your bed to celebrate summer this year?
