Great pattern - worked up very quick. Used brown/yellow yarn (to look like Sunflowers). Will be a great added gift to a Garden Basket I am doing for my daughter.

Thanks much -

These are beautiful! Can't wait to try out the pattern for a hostess gift. She loves birds - I wonder if there is a way to incorporate little feathers into the border?
