    found the pattern here http://www.plumcreekquilts.com/Dahli...20Patterns.pdf
    followed the pattern for the first 3 rows, then cut 3 of same material for the rest of the rows. Putting it together,I seewed 2 off the same petals together right sides together, turned then stuffed it with batting. Then added the other petal and sewed it as per the pattern. Making sure that the stuffed petals were free at the top. All done by hand
    Hope this helps, as I will probably never do another one
