One sunrise block
I had to struggle to make this come out the correct size, but in the end it worked out. I paper-pieced the rays first, and appliquéd the yellow center on pretty easily, but ran into challenges when I tried to reverse-applique the outside border onto the paper-pieced center.
For my next block (for my own sampler) I think I will try to make the ray unit first and then appliqué that unit to a 14.5 x 7.5 rectangle. Then I will cut away the back, and see if that is more stable.
I’d like to donate this block.
