    I think when I get to making one I would leave the center edges undone and I would turn it upside down and hand applique it to the flowers and hand applique the flower to the block also.Thanks for the tute.

    That would be a possibility, but the flower loses a lot of it's dimension that way. I started out with the center yo-yo's upside down but liked the look of all the gathers better.

    That is one of the joys of quilting--we can get ideas from each other and then develop them to suit our own tastes. Isn't it great?

    I used to work for a place that had to wear plain t-shirts, ah well I started making these bigger and bolder. . Cheery. Everyone would say let me see. They are a blast ugly, prettr or cutisey.

    This is great! I would love these on pillows! I would put a big colorful vintage button in the center!

    Some people I gave big 6 inch flowers to as gifts tacked them on on a floral stick and then pocked them into a styrofoam ball and put in a little flower pot. So cute, also if you have an old vintage brooch for the center, put on a purse or a package. What a fun thing so many ways.....

    No--a friend showed it to me. I don't know where she learned to do them.

    Thank you for putting these pictures up. If you enlarge the yo-yo, stuff it, attach with the opening down, you'd have a beautiful pin cushion with petals that will curl up around it. I did a quilt block somewhat similar as a sewing box cover. I was so glad to see your pictures because I couldn't remember how to do the petals and I'd love to do a stand alone pin cushion.
