I’m so thrilled to once again be part of QuiltMaker’s 100 Blocks Blog Tour! I’d like to extend a big hello and welcome to everyone who stops by this week! Hard to believe this is my 5th time!
My block can be found on page 10. It is called Sunflower Dance.
This is a fusible applique block that is quick, easy and versatile! I think sunflowers are amazing. They grow so tall and beautiful. I thought it would be fun to turn this block into a table runner that can be enjoyed year round. I made the same block but in different colors and paired it with Cross Roads blocks to get this….
And a few closeups…
My process for designing is quite simple. I like to have a sketch to work from that I’ve drawn by hand and then I use cardstock to make templates for my appliques. I use paperbacked fusible web to adhere the appliques to the project and then I finish the appliques with blanket stitching.
Now it’s time for a give-away!!! I’m giving away a copy of 100 Blocks Volume 11 to one lucky reader and QuiltMaker is also going to give away a copy to another lucky reader! Just leave a comment and be sure to fill out the email address. No one will see this but me so I know how to contact you if you win. Tell me what your favorite summer flower is and what you are working on this week.
I hope you’ll follow my blog and join me for weekly updates, swaps and my podcast, Quilt Cabana Corner.
