Sunflower Mini is the third and final piece in Jill’s mini flower series. Start by making a simple paper pieced base with an appliquéd vase. Then make cheerful sunflowers using a simple double sided petal technique enhanced with a bit of colored pencil and a raw edge yo-yo center with some optional beading. Finally, free motion techniques are applied to the foliage of the sunflower to add dimension. What a lovely addition to the ‘mini’ series! Bring your own fabric; see supply list for details.
