Sunflower Centres

The last two centres for the red and white Feathered Star/Sunflower blocks are done. Now it’s a matter of finishing the Feathered Star blocks themselves, adding them to those already done and starting on the borders.

I’m grading the seams as I go and have learned it’s a lot easier to grade the centre sunflower before it’s in the centre of a 20″ block. I wait until after pressing before grading the seams. Then it’s a quick press again and they’re done.

It snowed a fair bit last night but today it’s supposed to be quite mild again, so I suppose it will all be melted by noon. Last night was the first time this winter I would have possibly gone looking for boots had I been going out.

Baxter in what seems to be a chair meant for kitties. The cat I had as a little girl loved this chair, and so has every cat I’ve had since then. It seems to be just the right shape for them. It’s actually a very comfortable chair in which to sit but, as it’s usually occupied by a cat, we don’t seem to get the chance!

  1. How exciting, almost done with this one! I am patiently waiting to see this one in all it’s glory!
    Cats know how to seek out the most comfortable place in the house and then they claim to own it!
    No snow here, 70 degrees yesterday and a bit cooler today but still in the 50’s. Now spring birds are showing up, hope they don’t regret it!


  2. Our winter has been similar. I bought new boots last year and wore them quite a bit then. I’ve only worn them once this year. I guess that means they will last for many winters.


  3. Isn’t bold red/white striking! One forgets how lovely simply two-tones can be. Just lovely piecing…looks grand as is…will be dazzling when done I’m sure! How dear, a special chair filled with lovely memories…and now purring kitties! Life is good!
    Hugs and happy stitching!
