 I love overdyed fabric but have no time to do it myself so always look for pieces when out at Quilt Shows or in fabric shoppes.   Here is one that I have saved for exactly this piece.  I have quilted it so it is ready for the flowers.   

 Sunflowers are one of my favorite flowers and I have planted a few in my yard this year.  I have done them in the past so I do not use a drawing but instead just free cut all of the pieces and construct it on my teflon sheet.

Had to include a partially open one.......which will be even better once quilted.

 I like place them on the quilt knowing in my mind what will still be coming.....you will have to wait to find you. 

Now I add their stems and may add a few of their leaves that are behind their stems before fusing and quilting.

I am happy when working on sundlowers....they have so much personality...joy in the beginning and then sadness at the end.

Oh, the flowers are so beautiful I could cry! I love sunflowers. I bought a piece of hand dyed fabric last month that I was thinking of for a water lily pond. I guess if I quilted it first, I could assemble the flowers and leaves on top. This is such a beautiful piece- made my visual day!

They do much a wonderful subject for art quilts, lots of variations and the shades look nice against a lot of different backgrounds.
