    Bev.....I checked out Brandy's website this morning, started this about 11am, finished in two hours after watching the video once!!

    No fancy template - used a plate with a little blue tack on lip to stop it slipping

    No marking with pencil on the cross - you already got the iron in your hand so just folded it in half ironed the seam line - rotated a quarter - did that again!!

    Its not perfect by any means - I messed up with the embroidery - I am too impatient and should have tacked/pinned the petals more as when the machine was moving around to do the fancy embroidery the petal slipped hence the puckering :(

    BUT I love the technique and can see myself doing a demonstration at our guild meetings.

    So a BIG thank you for finding this site, I have had a fun afternoon playing :D

    Terri Just changed the pictures as they weren't very clear...took it out into the sunshine AND put my camera on the correct setting this time :roll: :lol:

    You should try it - its great to do - so quick and I think you could add batting and technically it is quilt as you go!!!!

    I might just go and add another row right around it now, hey you watch it will be a full size tablecloth by tea time!!! :D

    If you check out the website, you can see just what you can make with this idea, you can use any size circle random fabrics, you can patchwork the centres...the ideas are endless and again I will say this is very easy to do!! :D

    Well I have added the next four circles...but realised that I hadn't been as accurate as necessary on the first round...can you see how it won't lie quite flat...unless I was heavy handed with the iron....excuses excuses lol!!! I put rhinestones in the centre to make it look more like flowers - they are emerald green, its difficult to see in the picture.

    Its gonna live on my kitchen table :D

    Melissa if you check the website you will see some lovely ideas for just about anything with this idea!!

    I have solved the problem of the excess fullness - I just took a tiny pintuck on the corner circles...but one problem leads to another, now my flower centres are abit puffy - BUT WHAT THE HECK - I LIKE IT LOL!!!!!

    The link is a couple of messages up from yours paw - have fun!!

    Lisa - The lovely fabric with the flowers on came from one of our quilting buddies - if my memory services me right without checking I think it was 'Sewbusy', but I will check back so I can let her see what I did with her fabric.

    The plain yellow came from the charity shop - it was a pair of cotton shorts and the yellow with the fleur de lyl was fabric donated to the group!!!

    Oh - I bought the thread tee hee!!!!!!!
