Sunflower Gatherings--getting there!

I'm still open to signing up for the notion give-away
I should have mentioned that I'll pick a winner on Sunday September 14th using the random number generator.

I've been sewing like crazy trying to get my Sunflower Gatherings summer blocks of the week finished. I had waited to piece the alternate blocks until last week when the last of the fabrics arrived in the mail. 
Sunday night:
Here they all are--finished and ready to sew into a top! Yay!

Monday afternoon:
The top is together. The inner borders are pieced and ready to sew on.
Then I need to go back and start appliqueing all the pieces that overlap into the neighboring blocks--I hope I can decipher my note on the threads that I used--we'll see!
Hopefully the next time you see this, it will be done....


  1. Wow! Strong work getting this top to completion! It looks beautiful. What a wonderful way to celebrate sunflowers!

  2. Such a lot of work in this one but oh so worth it. Makes me wish I had joined in.

  3. That's so beautiful, a striking way to present such lovely blocks!

  4. I am always amazed at the amount of quilting you accomplish. My sisters and I are working on Primitive Gatherings' SBOW from last summer, haven't even started this summer's. You are such an inspiration - love reading your blog and getting great ideas.

  5. Wow - you are so fast! I have all of my blocks prepped, but am only stitching on #4. I pieced 2 of the alternate blocks just for fun one day. So...I have a loooong way to go!

  6. Wow! It looks wonderful and I love that bits of the applique overlap neighbouring blocks. Very autumnal!
