My Applique/Pieced combo.....

This quilt I call my SUNFLOWER quilt - of course we all recognize the coneflower motifs..but I decided to make my own renditions - add some colors that were a bit more earthy and Voila...for me my SUNFLOWER quilt :-)

This is the quilt where I tried machine applique for the first time and loved it......For this quilt, I make the center panel and then worked with that and auditioned fabrics that I felt would show off the colors and make the flowers pop.

I did hand stippling over all of the center panel - the borders are all machine quilted.....

This one was especially a lot of fun to do!


  1. Hey Bill, I have been following your quilts for the past while and man, you are an artist in quilt making! They are awesome and I want to encourage you to keep on doing what you have such a passion to do! What a talent or gift - maybe they both mean the same but whatever it is, it is God-given and keep on enjoying it because I am enjoying following you. All the best and I will keep watching your blog for new pics and updates. Take care and enjoy the rest of the summer!!! Ruth
