Here is my, close to completion, Amish Sunflower one block quilt. This is my first quilt done in all solids.
I was wishy washy for quite some time trying to figure out the quilting. I wanted it somewhat similar to the original and wasn't sure about thread color. It looked like on the original they may have used different colors depending on what fabric they were quilting. I was afraid to use black because my hand quilting is not that good. I have long stitches I have small stitches, crooked stitches, straight stitches......Libby told me something like this, "Lori, hand quilting is like your fingerprint, it is what makes the quilt unique." Something really struck a chord and I dove straight in on the quilting with black thread no less!!
I just started the border last night. I wish I would have made it a little wider, but I'm started now and there's no stopping me!! Please go check out Libby's blog for her version. She is still being a little secretive.....
