Sunflower block for a barn quilt
Today’s ICAD (Index Card A Day) prompt is ‘quilt.’
I’ve been designing ideas for a 3’x3’ barn quilt sign to hang in my front yard so today’s prompt gave space for some practice.
Sunflowers are top on my perennial list of favorite flowers, even though they’re annuals. And I’ve always loved barn quilts, so the match seems favorable. This is a rather sloppy watercolor pencil rendition and there are a few more patterns I’ve been considering.
You can read more about the history of barn quilts, hex signs, and quilt trails at West Virginia Mountain Mama’s website.
Until tomorrow! xox
