A couple of weeks before Christmas last year, my siblings and I wanted to give a friend of ours a pair of sunflower-themed potholders as a Christmas present. She is known as the Sunflower Lady to us so you can understand the unusual theme!
Since I made a load of potholders back in October I knew what to do right away. When I was running through the sewing room’s fabric stash, I found there was only one small piece of sunflower fabric left–I panicked.
But only for a bit. Knowing that I should really limit the amount of this fabric, I chose a quilt block that could use small pieces. I chose one from the Quilter’s Calendar that I received from my aunt. Here it is:
Once I made the block and the quilt sandwich, I bounded the edges and added a loop. Done! And just three days before Christmas, too. Whew! Made it!
