    this is needle turned and blanket stitched over the edges, I didn't realize that the yellow petals wouldn't show up very well from a distance so I added the blanket stitch to make them pop. And the center of the flower has gold beads added to make that pop. I purchased the border fabric from another board member and it inspired me to do this wall hanging. Its 30x30" and is my own design

    its applique not fused, you cut the piece with a 1/4" extra to be turned under, you kinda tuck it under with your needle an inch or so at a time then sew it down with tiny stitches
