You Are My Sunshine is one of the bright new designs by Willyne Hammerstein in Millefiori Quilts 4. (Photo courtesy of Quiltmania.)
Notice the wonderful placement of orange shapes to create stars around the sunflowers. <gasp> A stroke of genius.
The orange shapes frame the sunflowers.
Willyne’s fussy cutting is fabulous!
The colors are amazing.
Each sunflower is a work of art.
Sunshine to brighten anyone’s day.
This shapes in this collection are the same size as the ones in the book.
YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE
When I introduced the new Confetti shape collection, wedding music was perfect.
You Are My Sunshine has its own music too, of course. . . . . .
There are several other versions of this uplifting song on YouTube.
LOVE THE LINES!
As usual, there are layouts to print on fabric (20 colors) or on paper or freezer paper.
Willyne has inspired many quilters to hand piece her designs with a running stitch.
These three new videos use Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses as an example but the lessons about using templates, fussy cutting and hybrid piecing also apply to You Are My Sunshine.
Quilted Diamonds 2 is a wonderful book for anyone who is learning how to hand piece. The two-hour lesson on DVD is like taking a private lesson with me.
Willyne’s assembly instructions are illustrated in the book. You need the book but you don’t need acrylic templates or papers. (Why I don’t sell acrylic templates.)
If you are ready to complete your collection, I am ready to help. All 4 books are in stock. Two books fit in one flat rate Priority envelope ($7.15), so you can get the most for your postage.
