I've been working on these sunflowers for a long time. I'd sew a little, then put it down and do something else. The background fabric is a deep yellow/gold and for some reason it was hard to see the lines. I first traced them with the blue wash-away pen but that just seemed to fade into the background so I washed that out and retraced the whole thing with a red pen. That was much easier on my eyes. I want to make a throw pillow but don't have any coordinating fabric yet. I'm going to take this with me Saturday and go to a quilt show I found out about that's in Slidell, Louisiana this weekend. The ad said they will over 300 quilts but it didn't mention vendors. Surely they'll have vendors. Right? All quilt shows have vendors. Right? Promise me they'll have vendors!
