We are quilting along with Barbara
Brackman's Block of the Week,
And since this is about choice, I have chosen
to make a different block. I am traveling
again and away from home for a month, so I
don't have my stash to pull from or this would
have been yellow, orange and brown. I couldn't
print the pdf to the correct size, I tried
the block given this week and failed.. and
said some bad words...
So, I chose another block that could be seen as
a Sunflower to offer as an alternative in case
anyone has the trouble I had.
I also have a lobster dinner to get to this evening
followed by an opening night party so I wanted
to be happy and not frustrated tonight.

4 - 2 1/2" squares
4 - 3 1/4" squares - Mark

Make Half Square Triangles:
Pair 3 1/4" Fabric A and B squares with
right sides together, sew 1/4" away from
each side of drawn line. Cut on drawn line
and press to the darker fabric. Square to 2 1/2".
Layout and sew 2 Half Square Triangles
as shown and press seam open.
Layout units as shown and sew
together in 3 rows. Press seams in
rows 1 and 3 to the outside and seams
in row 2 to the inside.
Sew rows together and cut a circle to
the size that looks best to you, mine was
the size of the bottom of a glass and
applique as desired, I sewed it with a
small zigzag on the edge.
