Today at guild, Barbara and I pin basted my sunflower quilt.
My goal is to have it all quilted for our quilt exhibit to be held in early Spring 2012.
Kinston, NC is celebrating the 250th anniversary of our town's beginning and as you might imagine it is going to be an exciting event that will take place over several months.
I really have not had much time to work on many quilts except small projects since I have been guild president last year and this year.
So I would really like to complete this quilt and have it all ready for the show.
My plan is to machine grid quilt the sashing area and to hand quilt the sunflowers using cross hatch and outline quilt around the sunflowers.Not too sure about the borders yet but would like to free motion some designs including some butterflies !!
We will see......
