While I had hoped to get the first sunflower completed Wednesday night, we were out for a while at a friend’s and there just wasn’t enough time. Stitching these shapes is an absolute delight! They go together quite easily, without any issues. Normally, I’d join the two rounds of diamonds and triangles together before adding them to the fussy cut centre. The second round of diamonds and triangles is started, as shown. I can’t wait to see it finished. The fabric I’m using for the background is going to, I think, really frame the sunflower rather fabulously.
This is how the centre looks with just the one row of diamonds and triangles added. If I were going to make a 6″ block, all I’d be adding now would be background. However, I’m adding the further round of triangles and diamonds and my block will finish at 12″.

Lester was looking at something I was holding just above the camera while Mr. Q.O. took the photo.
Smudge had been at the water bowl shortly before this shot was taken. As usual, he was putting his whole head into the water bowl and then catching the water as it dripped down his face. I think if you click on the picture to enlarge it you can still see some water droplets on his fur.
