The Block Can Be Used in Many Projects!
Nothing announces late summer quite like beautiful sunflowers. Their sunny faces and bright yellow colors are fun and cheerful and remind us of the fall harvest to come.
This beautiful block is a lovely representation, with pretty sunflowers sprouting from spools of thread. The block can be used in many types of projects, like bags, wall hangings, runners, and more. Or make several for a quilt.
The block is part of a sampler quilt presented as the 2023 Year of Spools Block of the Month quilt-along. You can see all of the fun blocks here and learn more about the quilt-along here.
The completed sunflower block (with 2 flowers), designed by Heather Briggs from My Sew Quilty Life, is 14” x 14” with white borders and 12” x 12” without the borders. One sunflower finishes at 6″ x 12″ without borders.
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!
