Sunflower Centerpiece Tutorial
Yesterday I showed you the Half Square Triangles I cut with my AccuQuilt GO! Baby and also a tutorial for making a pillow you can click here if you missed it. I have lots of HST’s cut and I decided to make a runner from 3 blocks in different colors.
The block with the yellow just seemed to jump out at me so I took the runner apart and used this block for a centerpiece or it could be a candle mat. I forgot to take pictures as I went.
I fussy-cut a sunflower from the fabric and put it in the center and did a free-motion appliqueing around it.
I didn’t want to use up all of my Sunflower fabric so I just used muslin for the backing and Warm & Natural for the batting. I stipple quilted it with a close stipple in the creme areas with creme thread and a big stipple in the rest with a dark taupe thread.
It finished at about a 18 inch square after I added the 3.5inch sunflower border. I used a 2.5 inch straight binding and sewed it on by machine.
