Another quilt in my series of exploring the possibilities of stitched raw edged applique. This time I used curves to create abstracted exploding suns. There are six circles, each made of four blocks, each one different. Creating the "suns", I alternated the blocks of "suns" to add more interest. I worked intuitively and spontaneously stitching the blocks that I placed on my design wall and reconfigured many times until a composition was decided upon. Whimsical motifs were appliqued to enhance the joy and energy to the design.
