Daughter in law's quilt




This was supposed to be for her birthday on May 6th........well needless to say, it isn't done. I now have it ready for the frame tho. Lisa's favorite colors are blue and yellow and flower the sunflower.
I'm thinking one more sunflower on the top left.......what do you think??
On this one I did a faux border with the yellows as a 9 patch to mimic Seminole. I like the way it stands out. And a pic of the feather border all marked out. Not sure what I will do in the plain blocks. I have a stencil for a sunflower so I may use that. Will know more after I get it on the frame.
9 Patches as a whole are sometimes boring. I wish I could take credit for the flower applique idea but someone on MQP posted one that her customer made with this idea and I thought it would be perfect for this quilt.

Freda.....I can't wait to see it quilted too!! It's 120 square so it will take time.
Gina......I will sew them down while I'm doing the quilting. Cheaters way out! Right now they are glued on.
