I made this, my very first quilt, 18 years ago. My Aunt Cela (a quilter herself) bought me my first Omnigrid ruler, Olfa Rotary cutter and sent me home with a beginner's guide to quilting and this is what I created:
What's sentimental about this quilt is the fact that all the fabric was leftover from a sunroom we had in Arizona. (which was obviously decorated in Sunflowers! LOL!) This quilt always reminds me of family gatherings enjoyed in that room and of myself as a thrifty young mother who sewed curtains and chair cushions out of sunflower fabric!
