    Ok here is another of my flowers from the Clover Flower Frill Template. For those of you who are interested if you look up Clover Flower Frill templates there will be a youtube how to video on there that may help.

    Be sure to use a heavy duty thread and I find that atleast 20-22 petals work better than 15 on the larger ones. Have not tried the smaller ones yet but thats next on the list. :mrgreen:

    Those are very pretty. Looks like something I used to make years ago with tissue/crepe paper. I love them with fabric. Thanks for sharing.

    Just watched the video (the four minute one) of the demonstration at a quilt show by the Clover rep. I can think of so many ways that these could be used since they are available in four sizes. Wouldn't it be cute on a baby or little girl or even adult headband. Embellish little girl clothes. My mind it going to town on all the fun ways I'm going to use this. Thanks again!

    I was imagining a beautiful quilt :-) I've seen 3-D quilts with flowers....this would work for those, I'm sure. (Not that I'm looking for another project)
