What Simone says about her quilt:

For IBS3, I created a block which is drawn with black thread. It shows a sunflower reaching upwards with its hands or leaves, receiving the gift of life.
It was difficult to combine the 9 blocks from my group because of the diversity in style, colours and techniques. I wanted to honour each block and give each of them space and attention.
One of my favourite blocks shows my cat "Fritz". He loved to sit in the sunshine in the grass enjoying life and watching the bees. He was killed last summer. The quilt is dedicated to him.
Many thanks to my friend Pernille Jörgensen, who helped with the border.
