1930's Sunflower with Carolyn Forster
Classes with Carolyn Forster • Educational, G, 21-Oct-2022
Inspired by a 1930's antique quilt Carolyn Forster shows how she uses acrylic templates to replicate the quilt block.

The block is ideal for highlighting particular fabrics and the templates are great for fussy cutting.
Carolyn demonstrates how to construct the block including tips for hand piecing and pressing to avoid bulky seams.
This beautiful quilt is great for using scraps as well as using some of your favourite fabrics.
