Get a fresh burst of spring with these original interpretations of the traditional Sunflower block. Once again, the talented winners and finalists of The National Quilt Museum's New Quilts from an Old Favorite annual contest have outdone themselves. The originality, visual impact, and excitement of their quilts make this year's volume a worthy addition to this collectible and informative series. For the seventeenth year, a selected traditional block design has inspired quilters to create uniquely individual quilts. Each has expanded on the block's design, taking it in new directions. Meet the quilters and let them tell you in their own words about their original design ideas, quilting decisions, and innovative techniques. Other titles in this popular contest series are Burgoyne Surrounded, Sawtooth, Rose of Sharon, Dresden Plate, Seven Sisters, Monkey Wrench, Feathered Star, Tumbling Block, Bear's Paw, Storm at Sea, Kaleidoscope, Pineapple, Mariner's Compass, Ohio Star, Log Cabin, and Double Wedding Ring.
