    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.

    My Mamaw would love that! I recognize alot of those fabrics from my Papaw's work shirts, clothes she made me, and some of her own. She didn't have much schooling, I think she finished 9th grade, was brillant in many aspects. When asked if she could do anything in the world what would it be, she stated she would go to college, becuase she loved to learn new things. She sewed, canned, quilted, made furniture, made the BEST chicken and dumplings in this world, and could catch and fry crappie like no one else. She died at 93 years old and was married 74 years.

    It is probably called Dahlia. It is an old pattern. It can be hand drawn if you feel comfortable.
    Take graft paper and draw lines in center of square up and across and diagonally. Then draw one side of the petal and fold paper and draw the other. The petals do overlap. You could, of course cut the excess from the back when you finih the applique. I judged a show yesterday that had these as the border. When you draw your square the finished size of the block then leave about 1/4 margin all around the square to get the size of the petal. Remember the secret to drawing a perfect petal is when both sides match. When you get the size you need then add the seam allowance. Can then be needle turned or use a template to fold over the edges or can be blanket stitched.

    Lisa - a big THANK YOU for the Ctrl + - I had no idea you could increase the size of computer images! It will sure make life a lot simpler than trying to increase applique patterns by hand and/or running to Staples!

    I have a book that calls this pattern Friendship Dahlia; however the petals are not as fat. I bet she made her own.
    Retired teacher, loving it.
    Love quilting also.

    Yes, it does look like the Dahlia pattern. I had been sitting here trying to remember the name.

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

    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!
