For her warm and cheery character, swirly personality and ability to bind the other members of the crew together, creating a cohesive whole.
At least that's what I hope will happen. I brought the Sunflower Quilt to the quilt shop yesterday and we laid it out on the floor and tried out numerous bolt of different colours and shades. Each and every passing customer was drawn in to have their say, great fun was had by all, and eventually we settled on this red fabric. It has the swirly pattern of the red Bali I tried out earlier, without the purple bits. I tried various yellows, but with such a wide border (6 1/2") it just became too dominant, so red it is.
But first, there will be some more quilting on this, hopefully finishing later today. The closing ceremony has started, and I didn't reach my goal of watching it while hand stitching the binding, but I'm not very far from the finishing line...
