Sunday slow down....

I was able to make the T block over the last few days. I think it came out pretty cute, after a bit of frogging on a couple of steps.

I've also made more progress on that Sunflower block from week 4. This one has been hand pieced. Almost to my goal of getting it done by Christmas. I just have to sew down the middle.... the brown might change colors. I also might pick out the outer green and just applique it down onto a square instead. I don't like how it is puckering.

How are you coming along on this block? I am joining up with Quilter Kathy for a slow down Sunday. I got all the kids presents wrapped this morning and tucked back away in the closet. I just need to go out to get a few groceries and some stocking stuffers for hubby and the kids and I'm calling it done. Then I can settle down with some hand stitching and relax. Head on over and see what others are working on.


  1. The Sunflower block has a lot of little bits to hand sew. Applique sounds like a good plan. Those curved seams can be so tricky. Have a great Christmas with the kids, they are at the perfect age for it this year.

  2. Your blocks look great! Yay for sticking with the Sunflower challenge! I have still not started and I know there won't be an opportunity between now and Christmas. Maybe during the week between Christmas and New Year's. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas!

  3. Love your color choices on your blocks, Merry Christmas!

  4. Love that T block.

    Kudos to you on hand piecing that block ... as much as I love hand quilting, I just don't have the patience to hand piece. ;-)
