    I used a red batik thinking it would define the pieces in the flower, it didn't work so I imbroidered (sp) around each one.

    well, I kinda do applique a different way using freezer paper on the right side of the fabric and needle turn under using the paper as a guide. The paper keeps the fabric stable and you dont have to reverse the pattern then try to iron down all the edges.

    it is, then with this pattern I used 16 gage clear plastic vinyl I found at Joann's and an ultra fine sharpie. I traced the pattern on the vinyl and layed it over the piece so I could place the next flower petal exactly where it needed to go. if that makes sense
