Friday Flower Sunflower

This week's flower is a sunflower. I based my sunflower block on my top selling pattern "Simply Sunflowers".

This week I decided I just wanted to use one flower attached to a stem with two leaves. The leaves and stem intertwine so that means I need to put only part of the stem (darker green) in place to start with, add the large leaf (on left) and then finish by placing the stem over the end of that large leaf.

I chose six different yellow/gold fabrics for the petals and only five thread colors.

Adding dark stitching around the petals, really makes it stand out. My finished block looks like this.
