The First Sunflower Finish

 I am almost finished with all of the quilts I am working on for Kat over at Covered In Love.





The last blocks I tackled were the Sunflower blocks.  These were from the Nov/Dec block drive.  I think Kat sent me all of the blocks that were donated.  For this first quilt, I decided to piece them together so they form a bunch of sunflowers.




No borders - just 30 blocks sewn together to make a 60 x 72" quilt.




For the quilting, I decided to continue with the sunflower design and quilted chains of flowers at the block intersections.




They really show up a lot on the soft yellow backing.




Here is a full size photo.  It is hard to see the individual blocks but if you donated, I am sure you might be able to identify yours by the black and white prints.

I was able to make two more quilts from these blocks.  I hope to share the final two next Friday - that gives me a week to get the bindings sewn on!

Have a great weekend everyone!

  3. That turned out great! I knew those blocks would make a great design, but they sure were fiddly to make. It's no wonder some turned out to be different sizes. I don't think I'd have the patience to make enough for a whole quilt. Thanks for turning our blocks into a beautiful quilt, Cyndy!

  12. This block gave me fits, so I wound up only sending one block. Your quilt looks great, but like, Diann, I'd never be able to do enough of these for a whole quilt.
