Monday I spent the day finishing up the design work on the sunflower quilt top. It went quicker than I thought it would. I added more sunflowers in the lower portion, and a lot more leaves to the stems. It was fun adding the final touches to a vision I have had in my head for over 5 years now! It is finally a reality. At the end of the day, I was a bit sad that this part of the quilting process had ended.

I have a day or two of applique stitching ahead of me. Next week I will take all the leftover fabrics and piece a scrappy back.....also known as......Back Art.
One more chance to get a bit of design work in.......my favorite part of the process.
The iris began to bloom today. At first I was upset to see it raining all over them, but I took the camera outdoors after the rain and the rain drops added such beauty to the blooms.
Mother nature can put any colors together and they always work....they always look wonderful together.
So far there are only 5 blooms....out of 100 flowers that will bloom. I will post more images as we get more blooms.
We had a lot of fun tonight at our Permission 2 Play class. We made paper quilts. It was so therapeutic.....cutting and fusing and laughing.......I will sleep good tonight.
