    I have always said that my MIL gave me a really nice guy. Anyone who can be married to me for 46 years is something special. :lol:

    Hi Skeat, I graphed out my pattern and divided it into the individual pieces making sure I had a bit more where they overlapped. I cut each piece out of freezer paper, and numbered them to correspond with my graph (can you tell I made a stained glass quilt once??). Then I put my fabric(s) right sides together, fused the pattern piece to one wrong side and sewed around the pattern. If it was going to be overlapped I left that part unsewn and just turned it to the right side. The leaves, for example, I would clip around the curves and snip off the extra fabric at the points. Then I'd make a long cut in the center of one side and turn right sides out. A really good press and it was ready to be hand sewn onto the quilt. This way I didn't have to worry about turning the edges under. I made a pattern out of a sheet of tissue paper and pinned it to the quilt so I could place the pieces exactly where I wanted them and then tear away the paper. The stems were just bias strips that I make for binding, only thinner. Hope this helps. Remeber to post the finished product. My head is so big from all the compliments I may never be able to wear a hat again!!!

    Gail G. Thanks for the compliment. Thought you might like to see the whole quilt. That is, if I do it right this time.

    Why does it always make me think I messed up and then actually shows the picture??? Boy did that one come out blurry, but you get the idea.

    lets see if this is any better.

    Gorgeous. The quilting blows my mind (since all I can do is stitich in the ditch and cross-hatch.). And the ball is so pretty. There was a little one here with me this morning that would have had so much fun with that. I have the pattern. I just need to take the time to get one made for him.
