Bring the vibrancy of dawn into your home when you try to make the Rising Sun Quilt Block. This gorgeous block looks like a stained glass window and it would look marvelous as a quilt block in a larger quilt or by itself hanging on a wall. By paper piecing, everything will be pieced together in sections, which will make the process so much more accurate. Once you get going, youll be done with this quilting tutorial in no time! It is an advanced pattern, but it's doable, so don't be too intimidated.

What a glorious use of a Dresden Plate block. Making the center circle larger and yellow does make it look like a sun. I do think that paper piecing would make it more tedious than the traditional construction of the blades and then a quick machine appliqu of the project onto the background. Either way, the block is gorgeous.
