Block Four: Sunflower

Sheesh… this one was just a bit of a challenge for someone that hasn’t done hand applique in over 10 years – and now week four is under my belt.  I don’t have a lot to say, just awfully glad that I don’t have to hold my breath any longer.  It’s done, it’s done, it’s done!

Okay, so I have one thing to say about it; while I greatly admire hand applique, I think that I’d just as soon somebody hold a blowtorch to my feet and force feed me raw pig intestines while Lawrence Welk golden moldies play on a continuous loop rather than do hand work.

That does sound a little harsh – but… have I mentioned that it’s done?

    Thank you, ma’am. Much appreciated. I was just sitting here patting myself on the back for working through this block when it hit me – I have to do another one in the Liberty fabrics – OMG!

    Thanks Donnell – you’ll be seeing a lot of those same colors in this quilt. I was just looking at this block again today. Really need to get off my bigoldfatone and get it blocked.

    There’s something about this block that makes me smile. It’s aesthetically pleasing, and I can totally appreciate the work that must have gone into laying out a nine-pointed design.

    Nicely done!
