It’s a Classic Kinda Day: Sunflower
It’s time for another Classics block! This week we will be making Sunflower.
To create this block you will need the following templates.
The template kits for all my Classics are available through Sue Daley stockists and can be bought directly through Patchwork With Busyfingers. This block should measure 12½” when pieced together (12″ finished).
Many of these blocks can be machine or hand-pieced, depending on your preferences and what you feel most comfortable with. I personally prefer to hand-piece these blocks.
Following the hand piecing instructions sew 8-B pieces to 1-A piece using one continuous thread as shown in the diagram.
Finger press the seams.
Sew 8-C pieces to the AB piece as shown in the diagram.
Finger press seams.
Sew 8-D pieces to the ABC piece using one continuous thread shown in the diagram.
Finger press the seams
Sew 4-D pieces onto each corner of the block.
The block should now measure 12½” square.
The block should look like this once complete.
These Classics blocks look amazing in all different fabrics! You can change up the look so easily just by experimenting with fabric placement. Here is an alternative design I have made using fabric from different ranges.
Here are some basic quilt layout ideas you can try.
Remember share your creations using the #suedaleyclassics hashtag on social media so I can take a look!
