This is Marlene’s Sunflower Gatherings Quilt and it is a pattern by Primitive Gatherings, you can get the pattern or kit here. Marlene did all the beautiful wool applique by hand using a buttonhole stitch and did a fantastic job with her piecing as well. She changed the applique design a bit in the outer border and said she left more room for me to add quilting details. I quilted feathers and pebbles in the back ground fabrics and CC’d all the pieced squares. It was pretty intense quilting for me but I don’t mind the challenge once in awhile.
I used a beige 100wt Invisifil thread on this quilt as I find that is the best thread to use for dense quilting designs.
The batting is Quilters Dream Blend batting.
