Enchantment (Sunny Flower and Friends)

  Enchantment was originally called Sunny Flower and Friends.  This title did not seem to fit the magic I found in the piece.  Well, here it is in it's final version.  A wider boarder was added along with crystals and some beads.

The inspiration for this quilt came from a hand painted greeting card of an intertwining sun flower and iris. The quilt is designed to be enchanted and whimsical. It depicts an imagined sun flower species spied by an enchanted frog. When I create a quilt my goals are to draw the viewer into the work with high contrast and color and then keep the interest through creative detail.
 This is an original design.
