    Need this Pattern! Can you tell me the name?

    My Mamaw made these quilts for my brother's, and they received them when they got married, she started each one when we were born. I need the pattern to make some pillows for Christmas. I don't have access to the quilts or I would just trace the pattern, these are just pictures that I was sent secretly. My Mamaw passed away 8 years ago, my oldest brother has since remarried and I would like to give her a piece of my Mamaw that isn't kinda tainted by the ex-wife. Thank you!

    OOOOh that is great. but you don't need a pattern you can just draw it out. cut it out hand or machine applique it. just draw your own. I do it all the time. good luck and yes you can do it. lol
    SMILE- it will make everyone wonder what you are up to.
    Stay strong and keep looking up.

    I like it. YOU can reproduce the pattern exactly. Put a piece of paper over the quilt on an ironing board or other non-rigid surface, Using a pin, poke around the edges of a petal and the circle. Add another bit for the parts that will be overlapped. Alternately, print the portion of your image with a petal and the center and do the same. You can then glue the pattern to a piece of cereal box or cut it out of template plastic. (My fav for patterns is used Xray film from my doc's office.)

    Would she had made a full petal and they overlap? This is my first try at quilting, I thought one block into a pillow would be easy enough, I HOPE!!!!!

    Actually, since the petals are not all equal, I suspect what the lady did was cut complete petals and overlap them. When you have half of the petal cut out, fold it in half to cut the other half. I love this scrappy pattern. I think I will try it.

    I don't have the quilt, otherwise I would. I am trying to blow up the picture and copy a petal.

    Take the picture to a copy machine and print it out. Enlarge to suit yourself. Copy one petal and make sure you leave a bit of margin for folding under. Copy the size of the circle, too. PATTERN FINISHED!

    If I were doing the flower, you can bet I'd overlap. No sense in making life harder.

    You can also hit Ctrl + on your computer until one petal is the size you think it should be on your screen. Put a piece of paper on your screen and trace with a felt tip marker. This pattern really doesn't have to be exact so you can do it easily.

    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 think this original was raw edge applique. It is probably best to cut the petals from fabrics fused to iron on stabilizer. If you want to get compulsive, make the petals 1/4" larger and turn under the edges. I wouldn't, since you want to duplicate a wonderful existing quilt. 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.
