The Quilting Arts magazine June/July issue arrived this week and anticipation was high to see Sue's quilt published in the Reader's Challenge. Imagine her surprise to see it on page 2 along with the Editor's Notes!
As Vivika notes in the caption, it reminded her of the flowers growing along roadsides in Vermont. Coincidentally, this little piece was inspired by a photo taken in neighboring New Hampshire!
After finding the great batik background, Sue set out to create a Buds, Blossoms and Blooms quilt of Black-Eyed Susans. The first step was creating the flowers using Thermofax screen fusible appliques. There were 2 different flower images made in different sizes for variety.
