The Quilty Barn Along...Barn 6 - Sunny Sunflower Tutorial!!!...


Well good morning cute people!...
I have missed you:)

Today is the
and this is barn 6...
Sunny Sunflower!!!


But first I need to apologise because yesterday...
I neglected to announce the winner of the giveaway from my last post.
I'm so sorry but time just got away from me.
The winner is 
I will be sending her these
 precuts...



 sending her a bundle of Lori Holt Solids!
YaY!!!!
A Big Thank You to Stephanie and 
everyone so much to everyone 
 for leaving me bloggy love about the YouTube
sessions...
you all put a smile on my face:)



Now onto the quilty Barn:)

Cut your pieces for the
 sunny sunflower block.
I cut 12 background squares at 1 1/2"...
4 yellow 2 1/2" squares...
4 yellow 1 1/2" x 2 1/2" rectangles...
4 green 1 1/2" x 2 1/2" rectangles...
4 green 1 1/2" squares ...
and 1 green 2 1/2" square for the center.

to go to my tutorial that I have previously done.


Now cut your barn block.
Cutting and tutorial for the barn block is here and here.


Stitch up your sunny sunflower block...



It should measure 6 1/2" square before you sew it into the side of the barn:)


One cute little 
Sunny Sunflower Block.
Some of you may recognize this block 
from a quilt pattern that I published and taught several years ago....
The blocks for that quilt finished at 12" 
and I called the pattern Sunny Sunflower.
I thought one in yellow and green needed to go on the side of barn number 6.
It's not quite ready for harvest yet ....
so the center is still green:)


Now build your barn around it.
I thought that this barn needed
 some honeybee's flying around inside:)


I didn't get a chance to put borders on barn 5 yet.
After market is over...
I'll get them both sashed....
but for right now they will remain
 on the design wall in my little studio
keeping a bumblebee block company:)

We are halfway finished with the first
 Quilty Barn Along quilt
and in 2 weeks from today
 I will be posting barn number 7...
as well as..
 the first block in the 
next barn quilt I will be making!!!

Have a quilty barn kind of day...
 and I will be stalking the
to see your cute quilty barns!!!!
xx

Oh Lori, you are such an inspiration to me! Been watching your YouTube videos today! I am learning some little tricks of the trade from you. Do you have a little Singer Featherweight sewing machine? Just bought one!

Keep inspiring my friend!
