36" x 44/45" panel to coordinate with Solana Fabrics by Robin Pickens for Moda
Sunfowers feel like such an expression of optimism and reaching for the bright side. Those giant flower heads, full of seeds, grow tall and proud and strong. When I created the artwork for this collection, I didn’t know how much I would need to be reminded to keep looking to the sun, just as sunflowers do. Solana includes two wall panels with favorite quotes, each of which is a yard of fabric. They can be framed as wall art, quilted for a simple wall quilt, or finished with blocks and borders for a larger quilt. My wish is that you will follow Helen Keller’s words, “Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadows. It’s what sunflowers do.
