    Has anyone used these clover dies to make these flowers ?
    Was wondering if they would be nice to add to a quilt.... and/or how about on a Bow Tuck Purse
    I know a wall hanging would not be a problem....but what do you think would be the changes of it on a regular quilt in the washing machine.....

    I would guess slim to none! Even something that will be used like a quilt or tote would be suspect, although the tote would probably fare better than the quilt. if I put them on a tote, I would sew them to a pin back, then pin on the tote rather than sewing it directly.

    Curious to see other's opinions.
    Actually, i'd like to hear from someone who's made a 3D pinwheel quilt to see how it looked after use and laundering. I love the look, but have been afraid to try.
    The flowers are really lovely! A wall hanging would be beautiful.

    I have not used them but was thinking about purchasing. They are on sale for $24.99 at www.nancysnotions.com for the set of 6 templates.

    Very cool video. I don't know about quilts, but they would be cute on headbands and such.

    Still think they would be fun to do,

    Worst case scenario would be you might have to dampen and reshape them a bit after coming out of the dryer :D:D:D

    I ordered them on sale from Sew Thankful; and a friend of mine did, also She lives in Iowa and got her order in 3 days. We are a ball making them. I pre-cut the material and put it in the bag for each flower, so we can do it on the run or at each other's home. For wall hangings, quilts, etc. they will work...just use strong handquilting thread.

    I am thinking that if I put them on a small quilt I would tack down each part carefully so that washing would not distort the flowers.
