Getting that sunflower project box empty seems to be my priority right now, so lots and lots of sunflowers have been made. Here are 7 of the most recent, in no particular order. I’ve absolutely given up picking favourites. I think.
A pretty blue one.
A yellow one.
A brown one. And this one surprised me. When I started stitching it, I thought I wouldn’t like the finished sunflower but I do.
This one may be my favourite of this group. See? I knew I couldn’t resist picking out favourites.
Another blue one.
The final one for today.
The stack of currently finished and pressed 51 sunflowers, which is rather fitting given that each 6″ sunflower block has 51 pieces in it. And there is absolutely not a chance I’d be making these were it not for Inklingo . I can’t even begin to imagine tracing all those tiny triangle and diamond templates, let alone how imprecise they’d be in comparison to the perfect lines and matching points that Inklingo prints on the fabrics.
There are more that are sewn together, but just not had their final pressing yet. I finger press as I stitch, so it really only takes a minute or two to give each one its final press. I’ve done a count and think I’m going to have 72 sunflowers when all those that were in the project box are finally all pieced. So I’m now wondering about a setting of 8 x 9 sunflowers with some sashing. Maybe. I’m not deciding anything yet.

While they are friendly, there’s a limit to how friendly. This picture made me laugh. Mr. Q.O. said it made him think of them sitting at opposite ends of a very long formal dining table, the likes of which one might see at Downton Abbey.
