    Sorry about that Dollyo, this is what happens when you have done the same pattern several times. You forget that not everyone else has....you make as many of the 4 circle sections as you want. The sections are then joined by reversing the direction that the last 2 side petals are sewn. I stitch these ones together facing the back and then simply stitch close to the edge with matching thread so they lay flat. Pictures to follow.

    For summer, white petals - big yellow button or many smaller yellow buttons or applique center for daisies. Gold petals, brown center for black-eyed Susans. The possibilities are endless. Just added another project onto my already lengthy todo list.

    This is such a good idea - I love your tutorial - now to get my Christmas fabric out - the bonus is I can use my Layer Cakes for this. Thanks for the great tute. Question - What size are the petals - I did not see any size indication. Thanks. Otis

    I think I just answered my own question - I looked at the pic again and looks like the petals are 6" from tip to tip.

    The reason I didn't specify a size for the petal, was in case you did a different size circle. Do you see the stitching line on the side of the circle? That is one half of the petal shape from the line to the circle edge. Take a piece of paper and trace that shape ( whatever size circle you decide to do) fold the paper in half and cut the whole petal. Transfer this to a piece of template plastic or cardboard and make sure to add your seam allowance after tracing the shape.

    Thank you! Going to be digging through my stash and hope to make a couple of these after I finish the quilt I'm working on. It's really nice of you to take the time to make this tutorial. How were the pear pies?

    Very good! This looks like the Less than Traditional Pattern Quilter's Haven has the templates small and large also a video for sale on www.quiltershaven.net if you would like to buy the rulers and video called Quilting with charlie. I made these last year for presents and they turned out great. Lots of fun. Thanks for sharing.
