Sunflower Quilt

This is my "Sunflower" quilt...pattern by Eileen Sullivan of 'The Designer's Workshop'.


I love to paper piece and Eileen does some of the best paper piecing patterns.

They are all printed on freezer paper which helps to hold the fabric pieces in place as you press them open and add the next piece. Tearing the freezer paper off is about like tearing off regular old copy paper.

I added some 'pebbles' for a free motion background fill stitch to the center of the sunflowers. Click on the thumbnails above to get a closer look.

Other than that, all the quilting is either in the ditch or some straight line in the borders. Eileen's quilt patterns always provides good ideas for the machine quilting.

A fun pattern to make...even better because two sizes, with one pattern each, come in the envelope.

A happy quilt!




English Roses is another paper piecing quilt I've stitched from a pattern by Eileen Sullivan. Like I said, I love this gal's patterns!

by: Tari

I just found the most beautiful sunflower pp pattern...tracked it to your site...and you gave a link. But when I clicked on the link, it says it no longer is a viable link. HELP! Do you have another way of getting in touch with this designer? I love, love, love the sunflower!!!
Please?!?!

From the Editor:

Hi Tari!

It looks like Eileen's changed her website. You can find the pattern here.

However, I enthusiastically recommend that you peruse ALL her patterns. I made several of them and love them all!

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. It's good to get the link updated!

Piecefully,
