I looked at all the other people's solutions to piecing it, and looked at my own skills, and decided to do a combination of machine piecing, and hand applique.
Here are most of the pieces (cut out last week) ready to assemble:
Here are the back side of a couple of the three piece segments, with the edge turned under, ready for the next step:
Then I arranged them on the ironing board, and fanned them out to overlap
Hmmmm, I need to close the gap! This is how it would have probably turned out if I'd machine pieced the whole thing. After adjusting the pieces, I have it how I want it:
I pinned everything and appliqued the seams to get the "sunflower" petals. Then I appliqued a black circle over the center hole, and to finish it, I cut an 8.5 inch black fabric piece, and cut a hole in the middle of it and appliqued it over the above piece. Voila!
Here are the blocks for BB's Suffragette quilt so far:
I'm also working on Lori's (http://humblequilts.blogspot.com) little quilt, and have made little four patches that are made from pieces that finish at 3/4 inch wide. That is, each square shown below is 2x2 inches unfinished.
Aren't they cute little guys?
