    I found these pictures while looking through the classified adds. I love sunflowers and would like to make this quilt. My problem is I don't know how to make the flower petals and edging. Can anyone help me?

    If you're trying to post a link or picture, don't use the preview. Sorry can't see what you're referring to.

    What a beautiful quilt!!

    It looks like the petals are done using a stitch-and-flip method. I'm no good at explanations but I think a white rectangle is used and a colored square is sewn (on the diagonal) to the ends of the rectangle. then trimmed and the triangle is formed by flipping the colored piece---something like doing the corners of a snowball. At least, that's what it looks like to me. Someone else will probably give you a better explanation and info.

    Look up "Delectable Mountains"... Looks very much like that to me.
