Sunflower Illusion, a Judy Niemeyer Paper Piecing design, is ready to be quilted.  I think it is just stunning.  This Quilt is earmarked for my daughter and her man.  I am thinking of machine quilting this beauty with embroidery thread to give the stitches more "luster", some cross hatching in one border, feathers in another...it will be fun to do.  Maybe use Fireside for the backing and washable wool batting.  I love the wool batting, it adds not only warmth, but so much definition to the quilting.
