Rain, rain and a bit more rain. That pretty much sums up my day. Oh and some dancing around the room with my children listening to Johnny Cash and a bit of Roy Bailey :)

It did clear up There was a break in the rain this afternoon and we went to play with the two fallen sunflowers in the garden :( 
I took some pictures of the ones still standing, they are terrible but I love the shapes and outlines of the flowers against the sky. I want to keep them for inspiration:

The girl and boy loved picking the heads apart and pulling out all the seeds. I love the textures and shapes of the heads too:

On to more quilty things...

I have finished the quilt top for my daughter. The pattern is by Amy Smart:

I have NO idea how to quilt it - I've only done one before and I did diagonal lines. I'm really not sure what will look best for this one. I want to try free motion and guessing stippling is the best thing to start with. I'm going to have to practice. Does anyone have any tips or advice? Also if you can suggest any other ways to quilt it that wouldn't be too advanced I'd really appreciate it. I was thinking of using pale pink or cream thread, any other ideas?
That's a whole bunch of questions but I'd love some input!

I've managed a couple of blocks for my son's quilt and I'm really going to get on this one now and forge ahead (as well as being bothered to press things before I take pictures!):

I have to finish them both before I can hand them over, only fair they get one each :)

I'm still sewing squares together for my sampler quilt and think I'll be doing that forever, I also need to think about the backing.

Alright less thinking and more action needed!

Please leave comments with any suggestions or advice you have for my daughter's quilt, I'm feeling a little lost today.
