The April A to Z Challenge is in its tenth year, I’ve now participated for 6 of those years, and this year will be my 3rd quilt theme. It’s my first quilt using only patterns from the Kansas City Star newspaper archives. Welcome to my blog!
This project is separate from the Star blocks I’m creating but still fits into the Letter U because the recipients will be Unsuspecting. And I love surprises don’t you?!
She gave me an uneven number of blocks so it was up to me as to how to create with them. She gave me free reign. I’ll be using up mother’s blocks in this style in lap quilts. And maybe they’ll be ready by next Christmas??
Did You Know?
Sunflowers originated in the Americas in 1000 BC. In 1996 it was chosen as a symbol for peace and a world free of nuclear weapons. I think that makes it pretty special!
Come back here Monday for another quilt block for the A to Z Challenge! Also be sure to visit the home of the A to Z here and see other entrants challenge posts. There are excellent writers participating every year with topics in whatever you’re interested in
Love the sunflower design. I did not know the flower had been chosen as a symbol for peace and a world free of nuclear weapons. That is a rather heavy responsibility for a flower, even one as sturdy as a sunflower.

Heavy responsibility for sure! You know your flowers 😊 we grow them each summer and love watching the birds they bring in.
I love sunflowers! They are one of my favorite flowers 🙂
