Golden Rod Sun

Every year when the golden rod comes into bloom I think "I don't need to dye with any this year" but every year it seems another quilting idea pops in my mind and out I go picking and enjoying it again.
This year I thought I would use it for the next Sun block. For the center of the Sun I arranged it in a circle.

For the rays I laid it out in this fashion.

After steaming and washing the wool it's ready to be cut out.
This will be the center of the Sun.

Individual rays will be cut from each flower print.
And that will all be done as soon as I find time to dye some indigo wool for the background.

It's so beautiful Kathy! Every time I think of goldenrod, I think of spiders! I remember how they crawled out when we put the goldenrod in water!
