    Hi Everyone,
    I know most of you are waiting to see the new BOM pattern for January, so I won't keep you any longer!! It's called Sunflower. I picked this one hoping to brighten everyone's January days!!
    Have fun & don't forget to post your finished block so we can all see them.

    http://www.bluemountainquiltersguild.../Sunflower.pdf (due to recent changes at the referenced website, this link may not work for everyone)

    Have Fun,
    Cheryl
    :D :D :D

    I found the block elsewhere. The block is included in Maggie Malone's book, "5,500 Quilt Block Designs". It's #448, on page 40.

    Very basic instructions can be found at the Quilter's Newsletter website. Go to this page, scroll down a bit until you see the image, and click on the word "Sunflower".

    http://www.quiltersnewsletter.com/ar...tacular_Blocks

    they provide a piecing diagram along with both templates and rotary cutting dimensions. the rotary cutting are in small print, with diagrams, inside the templates.

    if you set page scaling to "none" before your print from adobe acrobat reader, the templates print at the correct size for a 12" block (12-1/2" unfinished).

    if you cannot open the instructions, it means you don't have a recent enough version of adobe acrobat reader installed on your computer. to solve that problem for free, just go to http://www.adobe.com and click on "get adobe reader". follow the extremely easy instructions for installation.

    Oh thank you Cheryl. I thought it would be a way to keep me focused on checking in, having a little fun, and keeping up with people. I seem to drift in and out of the forum if im not focused lol. Thanks so much Cheryl, this will be fun :)

    Beautiful and sunny block. Love it. I'm going to tag along with the BOM and just maybe I'll have a quilt done by the end of the year. Thanks for picking out a neat pattern.

    the block seems to have disappeared from that website.

    go back to the top of the topic for a new link.

    Thank you very much for fixing the site for everyone. Off to the fabric store at 10 to try a couple ideas.. of course if I like them both that could mean two quilts .. one for me, one for Christmas.. hey.. not a bad idea. I can make two blocks a month. Phew!

    I like this block. Am on my way to my LQS as there is a sale today - will look for some bright and cheery fabric. I tend towards blue and yellows.
