How is it that time passes by so quickly? Josiah was born way back in 2013 and I’m just getting around to making him a quilt! I saw a bright, fresh design with stars that someone posted on Facebook. I thought I could make the stars into sunflowers and use the same African fabrics I used for Nathaniel’s quilt a few years ago.
Because I had used up some of the fabrics and others hadn’t held up well with washing, I needed to add to those I had previously used. The back was pieced with larger strips of the same fabrics that are on the front and I made an additional sunflower for the label which is pieced on the back. For some reason I never took photos after it was pieced and quilted but you can get the idea of what it looks like from the pieces pinned to the design wall. The plan is for it to be a 2nd birthday present when we go to visit Josiah’s family in November. I hope he likes it.
