My first sunflower block turned out as wonderfully as I had hoped. I used shapes from both the 6-inch and 12-inch collections so that I could make the double sunflower.
While I was stitching, I was taking pictures of the continuous stitching sequence that I’m using but unfortunately none of them turned out well enough to post. I’m going to make a second block and Mr. Q.O. will take over the photography duties so that the photos are clear. I will post them either on the weekend or on Monday.
It presses like a dream and the block lies wonderfully flat.
The block finishes at 12″. I’m going to make one more block using these fabrics and then play around with some border ideas using shapes from the collections. And then? Well, then I’m going to make a sunflower variation using perhaps some batiks or maybe I’ll make a red and white quilt. The possibilities are endless. I’m glad I decided to make these blocks first as it has made it easier to sort out think about the design I’ll use for a larger quilt.
