This is a daffodil block that I made for a group project my guild is working on. It measures 9 1/2 inches square (to finish 9 inches square). The pattern is a modification of a block from a Quiltmaker quilt, "Daffodils" from the Mar/Apr 2001 issue. The blocks in that quilt range in size from 6" x 10" to 6" x 14". I had to scale it down, which meant redrafting the foundations to match the new size. I also left out the center applique circle and just made a (proportionally) larger yo-yo. I made the yo-yo the traditional way, not the way described in the pattern instructions.
