My paintings inspire Quilts!
All my quilter friends out there, you will be interested in these quality quilts!
My friend Maria in Ontario Canada, is the owner of Quilts for Sale where she provides a venue for quilters to sell their quilts. She is a quilter/quilt designer, too. As one of the Island Batik Ambassadors, she has been designing quilts with their gorgeous Island Batik fabrics for the past 2 years. Sunflower Fields #2 is one of them.
(Continue scrolling on down to see Sunflower Fields #1.)
Learn more about Maria and view the close-ups and details of Sunflower Fields #2 by clicking on its photo, below.
Sunflower Fields #2 by Maria Michaels Designs
Sunflower Fields #1 was inspired by, and a gift to, my friend, and very talented artist, Leslie Allen, who has painted a series of them.
Here is a photo of her painting. (Click on it to see this painting and others.) My quilted version follows below it.

Sunflower Fields quilted by Maria Hrabovsky
I was telling Maria how difficult it is to find sunflower fields on the
front range now! So these paintings and quilts are definitely preserving
the farms north and east of Denver as they dont exist anymore.
I delivered seven dozen cards to the Papery this week!
Among the images on the cards is this sunflower:
