Sunflower Gatherings Block Three and Four

Here is block three, I like the basket and flowers it takes a while to cut all of those little pink flowers! The most important part of making this quilt is pressing each patch with the seams going the correct way!

Here is block four and my little scrap bird bowl!

I finished stitching block one and well on my way to finishing block two. It is a nice project to do while watching TV.... happy stitching!

Sunflower Gatherings Block Two

I have decided to post each block as I go ... so I get this done! Block two is done now all I have to do is the stitching around each piece.

I stopped off at the thrift store and found this cute little advertising piece for a quarter. When I looked it up on Google I found that it is a 1950's unmarked Japan Miniature Chamber Pot. It is very tiny measuring 1 5/8" tall by 2 3/4" wide. I decided to make a pin cushion out of it.

That's all I have for now - just need to get the stitching done!

Sunflower Gatherings Block One

This summer I signed up for the Sunflower Gatherings 2014 Block of the Month from Primitive Gatherings. I am just now starting block one! I have to say this is going to be a beautiful quilt; Lisa Bongean is very creative and I am very happy with the first block.

It's funny I have bought lots of tools over the years and have not used them...but of course had to have them right away. I can honestly say that this project has put a lot of those tools to work and I am very happy that I purchased them!

Now that I have it put together I need to clean up my mess and start stitching!
