Julie's Sunflower Square

Image of 7inch Julie's Sunflower Square Designed By Julie A. Bolduc

This 7" square would look wonderful combined with many other 7" flower squares in an afghan! It is a direct result of a request for a 7" flower square for a friendship exchange. It starts at the center with brown then ends with the inside row of petals on the flower.
