Sonnenblume by Ellen Hernandez

This week’s puzzle spotlights a quilt entitled Sonnenblume made by artist Ellen Hernandez of San Antonio, Texas for the 2016 Quilt Alliance “Playing Favorites” contest and auction. The piece is made from cotton fabric, raw edge applique, and spray fabric glitter.

Artist’s Statement

One of my favorite things to do is organize and when sorting my sewing closet I found several PIGS (Projects I’ve Gotta Sew.) This sunflower was from an unfinished Melinda Bula class with techniques I’m not really thrilled about, ie, kits, raw edge applique, free motion quilting. Adding a few of my fabrics, some glitter, and varied quilting turned Sonnenblume into a favorite – I got the PIG done!
