    This three-lesson online class will teach you all you need to know on how to make this beautiful quilt called "Sunflowers at Dawn". It is the second design in a series of Sunflowers. Begin by selecting your fabrics to make a simple color wash background block with borders, then move on to creating the sunflowers with fusible webbing applique techniques. Blanket stitch around each shape and add shading, then finish off by echo quilting the background.

    On completing this workshop, you should have a good understanding of shading fabrics from light to dark, using fusible webbing, making applique templates, blanket stitch applique, and free-motion quilting.
