    For those who wondered about the size, mine measures about 14 and 3/8 from point to point. I put it on an 18 inch paper square and there is about 1 and 3/4 inches on all sides. Here is my sunflower, it would have looked better in more yellow tones but this is what was in my stash.Name:  image.jpeg

    Tartan, That's so pretty. Glad you finished it and showing the measurement. I would like to make one as a topper for on my kitchen island counter. I think I have enough batiks to make each petal different. I love the sunflower one though. It looks so different from your other one.(which is pretty also).

    Your tutorial and photos are extremely well done and much appreciated. Thank you for the time, trouble, and perfectly stated and shown instructions. I'm a retired teacher of nearly 40 years and I will say that I've seen both good and bad. This is one of the best ever!

    I don't know what you mean by a better yellow. I couldn't look any better to me. It is wonderful. I'm going to bookmark this so I can refer to your wonderful tut when I get ready to start, Thanks for your hard work.

    Thank you for posting what size to expect and posting a photo of your perfectly beautiful sunflower on a background square. I was thinking of making a pillow.

    To stitch down my inserts on my sunflower center, I started on the corner where the insert next to it will overlay. I started with a back stitch and ended with a back stitch and cut off the threads. The thread ends will be hidden when I stitch down the next one. The only threads I knotted and buried were on the last insert.Name:  image.jpeg

    Here is the center stitched in. I put a piece of quilt batt under the brown when I pre quilted the circle and it made it a bit bulky in the middle. If I had to do it again, I would leave the batt off.Name:  image.jpeg

    I was wondering why you were sewing through your cutting mat in the first picture above. Then I realized it was the center fabric not a cutting board. Duh..... lol
