As the holidays approach we need projects that are easy to take with us and pick up (and put down) easily. This season I’m working on my Sunburst Blocks. I’ve already made one quilt, but I enjoyed making that quilt so much I’m going to attempt a bed quilt with lots of wonderful hand quilting and trapunto in the background. Just like the “Twelve Days of Christmas” I’m going to attempt to make one block per day.
Here is what I have so far…
I’m using the “sequential” piecing method to make these fast! Check it out on my website under “TIPS”. It is the same way I pieced the little sunflowers only bigger pieces means faster sewing!
In goes the center!
Now sew the outside pieces.
Now a good press on the back.
Turn over and press again. TEN blocks and counting!
