Make One or Several for a Special Project!
Colorful and friendly sunflowers are delightful during the summer and into fall. They bloom in gardens, fields and alongside the roads giving bursts of cheer to the landscape. This quilt block is one of the nicest sunflower blocks we’ve seen.
Use it in a variety of projects. It will be lovely in a table runner, wall quilt or a larger quilt for snuggling. Or, finish the block and display it as a mini quilt on a table or wall.
While the block is beautiful in sunflower colors, it’s just as lovely in other hues. The example below by Pat Sloan shows how it looks in red.
The block was designed by Vanessa Goertzen from Lella Boutique for Aurifil’s 2017 September Designer of the Month feature. It’s constructed of squares and half-square triangles surrounding a snowball center and finishes at 12″ square.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
