Another nice variation is to make each petal as its own little sandwich, sewing right sides together with fairly sturdy stabilizer, clip the seams, turn the petal right side out pin it in place under the circle and sew it down. That would make a 3D flower. Not what you want tight now, but you might enjoy doing it on another quilt.

    Looks to me to be turned under edges. Look a the lavender petal on the bottom. You can see the fold.

    took me a good while to learn that trick, too. Comes in handy!

    it is definitely a Dahlia pattern, though she probably drafted her own petals. There are ample patterns in the traditional quilting books. i believe there is one in Ruby McKim's patterns for sure.

    This is beautiful! Definitely overlapped; look at the bottom petal of the first photo. You can see the line of the right side, under the petal to the right of it. I'd also love to make one of those!

    I have (years ago) made quilts like it. I would cut out each full petal pin and hand applique the flower, animal, etc. onto a white square sew the blocks together, and finish it up. I started quilting in 1965-66. Had to use scissors to cut everything. I made one Daughter a quilt like that, it was called a Dahlia quilt, I bet that is it.

    I'd cut all my petals pretty much the same and just overlap them until I have the flower looking like I want it to look.

    There are several methods you can use to turn under the edge. Do whatever is comfortable for you. I'm sure the gift will be loved.
    I have done this, too...

    You could use a dresden plate template for your petals...
