Sunflowers on her Table

So sad to say that the "Twisting to the 60's" is over.  We all had a "Groovy" time!  There were memories that were brought up that were forgotten for years.  So a "BIG" THANK YOU to Mary and Madame Samm.  They did such a GREAT job.

I was also busy while this hop was on its way, with company and a fun Sunflower project.  This is one you can make in a day.

I drew the design and figured out the size that I wanted to make it.  
(It was going to be for my daughter-in-law so kept her table in mind.)

Then I picked the fabric out that I wanted to make my Sunflowers and leaves.

Then I got white and light printed Batik fabric and cut 17  2 1/2 inch squares out of each 
and my triangles for the edges and corners.

Next I sewn one plain to one printed square together:

After all the squares were together. I started putting them all together in rows.
I set them diagonally and added the triangle on each end:

When they were all together I added my Sunflowers.  
I put two on each end and left the center plain for her centerpiece. 

I added a 1 inch orangish, boarder and a 3 inch Sunflower printed boarder.
Then quilted it by machine going around the flowers, then in the ditch of all the blocks and boarder

Next came a brownish binding that matched the center of the Sunflowers in the boarder.
Then drew lines in the sunflowers to accent the petals.

Total size is:  16" X 16 1/2"

Table toppers, along with placemats, mug rugs, etc.  They are such great afternoon projets.

(by the looks good on her table!)

After that great hop I needed something to get back on track again. I have quite a few projects that I want to finish and even start.  But, before I do, I went to and got a winner to my giveaway I had posted earlier.    

And the Winner is:   L J   

CONGRATULATIONS!!!          I will be contacting you shortly to verify your winnings.

Check this out and don't forget:     NEXT hop is going to be "Wicked"

Starts October 22nd.  I know that seems like a long time from now.  
But actually it will be here before you know it.  

I am whipping up something "Wickedly" fun.  Hope to see you there.

This is beautiful - sunflowers are such fun. I think your pieced neutral background is what really 'makes' this outstanding.
