Below them are the twelve 18-inch frames I created, after I disassembled and re-combined and assembled them for my idea for a summer project.
I'll blog more about my plan for the 12 weeks of summer this weekend, but here's a sneak peek at my first completed block–my proof of concept for the this idea.
The center is a hand-pieced block made from a pattern drawn by me. The design is most identified as a New York Beauty ... but I've been thinking of it as my summer of Sunflower blocks.
I am happy with the combination of HST background and round and spiky centers ... my summer of sunflowers is a go.
Some of those triangles will come from the scraps of pretty yellow and gold hand-dyed fabrics from Vicki Welsh that I won in the drawing last month in the HSTeria QAL. Thanks, Vicki!
