    I am getting ready to try cutting fabric with the cricut. Do you have any suggestions/tips/pointers?

    To the OP. I have gone online and gotten some "templates" from kids coloring pages.

    I think it is Sumiko Kudo (book not with me) who has two books on applique, 3-D flowers that are great! Also, Joan Shay has her version that are also lovely (can't remember name of her books either)

    Just draw out your petal to the size you want and make the petals and then sew them down to make your flower if you want a daisy. Look on line at some of the quilt magazine web sites. I've seen some flowers in them this spring.
