I just finished this sunflower quilt for my mother-in-law and I’m quite happy with how it turned out. I made the pattern based on a few barn quilt designs.
I used reproduction Civil War era fabrics to piece the front along with my favorite cream Kona solid, and the backing and binding fabrics are from Joann’s. This was my first time quilting with a walking foot and I’m hooked; there are zero puckers on the back! I rolled both sides as I was quilting and it really reduced bulk, kept the fabric I was quilting nice and flat, and helped keep the lines straight. It took me a while to quilt though, since I had to walk away from the machine and reroll the quilt every time I finished a line.
I made a little tag and added care instructions on the back.
