Does anyone out have a good sunflower applique patter or know where there is one online. I am new to applique so need something relatively simple. I found one but I don't like the stems it looks more like a tree of life than a sunflower plant. Thanks!!!!!

Missi,
There's an adobe download for free for the sunflower project on allpeoplequilt.com....maybe that's along the lines of what you're looking for.

Best of luck with your project! Happy sewing :D

This might be worth a try: make the sunflower using the directions that

Retrogirl suggested from all people quilt. Make a second set of the petals

and use the method that Babeegirl taught us in "Tutorials" Tack those

(they will be dimensional) between two petals making a little tuck where

you tack them down. Then applique the center of the flower on top of

the 2 rows of petals. I think the stem is straight except that the weight of

the flower makes it droop a little at the end. Don't know what the leaves look like.
