Quilt Shot Block #12 ~ Spider Web

8 inch square
Found this pattern, probably in a magazine back in the mid 1970s.
To save the patterns I liked, I would trace the patterns.
 I apparently forgot to note to add 1/4 inch seam.
Never knew why magazines didn't always automatically include seam.
So this one turned out to be 8 inch rather than the 11 inch noted.

Some modern day tips I used in making this square:
Except note at the top of the strip triangle, the seams are pressed opposite to help lock in seam.

The hardest part in putting this block together is matching the center.

I didn't intend to fussy cut the sunflowers, but now I see two pieces should have had more sunflowers for a balanced look.
