October 2020 OMG Finish

My October 2020 One Monthly Goal was to make a total of 16 Sunflower blocks—12 traditionally pieced blocks to be used for placemats and four curved-pieced Sunflowers for a table runner.

After I finished making the blocks I sewed them into a “quilt top” to send to Melissa at Sew Shabby Quilting who has a wonderful Sunflowers quilting pattern that I think will look great on these placemats/table runner. After the quilting is finished, I will cut them up into twelve 12.5”  X 18.5” placemats and a 15” X 57” table runner.

  1. Clever idea, sewing it into a quilt top, then cutting it apart after quilting. Love the blocks; they are so cheerful and perfect for fall!


  2. Oooh, what a smart idea to sew them together like that for quilting. I’ll have to remember that. The blocks looks great and congratulations on completing your goal. 🙂

    Hi Mary! I a pretty piece. I just LOVE these blocks and especially the fabrics you chose. They are just perfect and so pleasing to the eye. I can’t remember if any of these are for you to keep but I sure hope so! They will look fabulous on any table for Fall. ~smile~ Roseanne

    Who would have thought to sew them all together, send them to be quilted, then cut apart and finish? Brilliant! The colors are amazing! Absolutely Fabulous!

    Looking great! I always love sunflowers because they’re both summer-y and fall-ish and can be part of decor that whole time. And, well, they’re our state flower, too! :o)
