QAD Sunflower



Janeen from Quilt Art Design offered this beautiful 12" Sunflower Block this month free in her Craftsy store. This is definitely the most difficult paper pieced block I have ever done. Here is a link to her Flicker group, where you can see other fabric selections. Looks like I am the first one to complete this months block of the month. 

This is a photo I took before I pieced all the sections together, kind of looks like a broken plate. I can not believe that all these pieces fit perfectly together. Sewing backwards is definitely a skill I am getting better at. 



This is the floor beneath my chair, bits and pieces. Would you believe I vacuumed yesterday?  I hate trying to keep things neet when I get involved with a project. I will be cleaning up the sewing room so I can start again. I have tomorrow off and I am going to sew all day. ( Oh and plant flowers, water the yard, design my new garden, feed the birds, cook a great dinner... and vaccumn the floor again!)
Love you all!

Your fabric choices are sublime! Well done.
I signed up to follow your blog. Sorry, I don't have one of my own. I have posted my blocks from this BOM in Janeen's flickr page under KoKoToby, You can see them there.

Your comment about the block looking like a broken plate before it is sewn together is so true! Too funny. What an awesome block, though! I can't imagine how long it took you to piece it. Beautiful.

Wow! You must feel so proud of yourself. I haven't tried anything that complicated. I really love how this looks. Your colors look like the sunflower that was growing next door last summer.
