More Sunflower photos...

My Monday night group met last night, and it was one of our best meetings yet.

The quality of people's 'Show and Tell" just gets better and better, and we really have fun. It is also a good way to learn about things that are going on - shows, competitions, classes, etc.

We also exchanged what we had done for the "Ugly Fabric" challenge, and it was very impressive to see what clever things people had done to make a "Silk purse" out of a sow's ear. 

My section of the sunflower is about 90% finished, and  we put the four parts together to get a sneak peak at what the finished product will look like.

The one on the bottom left is completely finished, and the other three are in various stages. mine, at the bottom right on this photo, needs to have the fuzzy part next to the petals made wider. That is good information for me, and I will do that before our next meeting. I think everyone will be finished by then.

 We will mount the pieces on a dark backing, and see how it looks as a whole. It has really been a fun challenge. What seems like a very simple image presented some real problem solving issues to translate it to fabric and fiber.
