    Thanks for all the kind words. The sad thing is that she has the beginnings of dementia and is quite forgetful/not loved any less, but forgetful. So I am not sure how long she will remember that quilt. I did sew a label on the back so if she needs her memory jogged a tiny bit, she can always look at the label. But she is a very special aunt, for sure. I just wished I had done this years ago.

    I don't know about that, but I must be the sole supporter of the find fuse company now! LOL I bought enough of it to do pansies with!

    The fine fuse came in 1/2 yard pkgs and I think it took 2 and part of a third.

    I finally got the pattern from Foothill. Thank you for your help. I have now tried to make my first pansy. How did you separate the petals. When I made my pansies the petals all seemed to melt together and didn't show any demention. Any suggestions? Did you embroider on the petals at all? Thanks, Quilter 1234

    I top stitched all the petals using machine embroidery thread and that helped. Also if you use Batiks with multiple colors so that each petal ooks slightly different that will help too. Good luck!

    Thanks. Did you match the thread or did you use black? I have been experimenting. I used a black marker to outline and see what that would look like. I may try a fabric paint, or embroidery sounds great. Thanks Quilter 1234

    Some were done with matching thread--like the blue ones--that had double thread in the needle--some were done with variegated thread--like the orangey ones. That thread was a little heavier so I just used one thread in the needle. Are you going to put them in baskets? I am dying to see what you come up with!

    haven't quite decided. I May not get a lot done until after my Christmas projects, Thank you so much for your ideas. I will post whatever I get done. I just bought a watercolor picture of pansy's in a basket at a local craft fai. I can never have too many pansies. Quilter 1234
