We have another pattern award this month! Sunflower - Daniel Froeschl was suggested by Karlyn, of Landenburg, Pennsylvania. It is shown below along with its companion, Sunflower Seen from the Back by the same artist. Wouldn't it be fun to have these as two sides of a pillow? They don't have to be rectangular as they're shown -- since the background is not stitched, you can make them square or round, whatever you like!
...even if someone else does . See Scarlet Quince Ramblings for the whole story. Spoiler alert: we will be able to add a pattern for Edvard Munch's The Scream in about 18 months!
We have a couple of times advised folks on how to do this, but we had never tried it ourselves. (A non-stitching friend asked if it is desirable to do that. Emphatically not, but sometimes you get into a tight spot.) We hoped to be able to give you all the details in this newsletter, but while it is possible to do, there are some tricks, and we're still experimenting. We'll write a nicely illustrated tutorial for the folks who just want to know the answer, and we'll write up all the things we tried in Ramblings for those who like to know the whys and wherefores, along with our rotten photos of the process.
