Well those red and yellow half square triangles fit nicely on my sunflower centers and the yellow, gold, and yellow-orange fabric looks just fine.  This is just the perfect fall project and adding the red and yellow pieces  to the brown centers was like a ray of sunshine lighting up my sewing room.

Winner, Winner

"My best friend happens to be my mom. Every good thing I have learned, I learned from her. I learned some bad things from her, too. My favorite thing about my mom is the kooky/weird/out there/strange sense of humor that she has. It's a good thing she passed it on to me or we wouldn't get along as well as we do. 

I enjoyed reading all your favorite things about your Moms, thanks so much for sharing!


  1. I love this quilt. When I saw it originally on Nicole's blog, it linked back to a quilter who used this quilt as a tablecloth. It looked fabulous. I bought the pattern, and will soon start collecting fabric; I hope to use this on my dining room table as well showcasing it as a quilt,

  2. Your sunflower block looks gorgeous! I must add this project on my Want to do -list.

    Love that block, Thelma.

  4. This is a beautiful block! I love sunflowers. I usually tend towards greens and blues with these. The red background is a gorgeous touch ... :)

  5. Your sunflower block looks great. The contrast between the brown centers and the red/yellow really does look like a ray of sunlight.
