Stitching Sunshine Härligt solsken



 It is summer and we have enjoyed some wonderful sunny days in Sweden and more sunny days will come.  A flower that is sunshine all over is of course the Sun Flower, a large and bold flower.
So I have made a table runner with Sun Flowers in a free appliqué style. I draw the flowers and then placed the petals  leaves in a free way. I used disappearing ninepatches as background for the flowers.





  It was so fun to make the flowers and the runner is now placed on my table.


And then I thought of a small quilt that I made two years ago for a challenge in the European Quilt Association with the theme Border. I thought  about the border between Sun and the Moon in the early morning when the moon  kisses the sun. The small wall quilt is still on tour in Europe and I hope that it will return to me next year. It has stopped somewhere in Europe caused by the Corona virus, as there are not any exhibitions this year.



Now hop over to my friends posts for this last day

I will thank lovely Carla for hosting this fun blog hop 

Enjoy the sunshine and I wish you all a lovely Summer
