Sunflowers - Alliance for American Quilts Auction Piece
I have finished my auction piece for the Alliance for American Quilts. This year's theme is "Alliance". In 1987 I made a lasting alliance with Mike Ellis. I got married. So to honor the theme, Mike and I made this piece together. He is an artist too. He painted a canvas based on a photo I took last summer in California. Then I made a quilt sandwich and finished it with thread.
