Work in progress..Giant Dahlia quilt top
Thought I would share my progress on my Giant Dahlia (aka Giant Sunflower) top. Have you ever had one that just made you soooo nervous that you keep putting off working on it? This is it for me. The author of the book told me REPEATEDLY to make sure my seams were exact or the whole thing would be off. So...I just didn't work on it lol. She was right about that, but this really went together quickly once I put my fear aside. This is just the center medallion..I still have to sew and attach the rest of the background, and then the border. The medallion is 54 inches and finished size will be 64x64. The border is really cool, too. I can't wait to finish it (or the other tops that are waiting)!! lol Thank you Suzzy Payne and Susan Murwin for making this so simple with your book!! And, Suzzy..if you are out there..sorry I didn't get it done in time for the show next weekend. Maybe next spring!
