    Fantastic tut. Thanks so much. I am not a real big fan of the usual "Christmasy Stuff" but this is lovely.

    We have a falling leaves festival coming up and this would be a fantastic table runner for it. I thank you for the tute. It is very well done.

    Thanks for the tutorial! Here's mine. I "cheated" a little on the add-on petals. Instead of leaving an opening for turning them, I cut a small slit (about 1.25") in the back side of the fabric, on the end that goes near the flower's center, and turned them that way. The slit gets covered up and stitched down, so it doesn't show, and I didn't have to hand-stitch any openings closed. I think this would be pretty with a gold flower on ivory fabric (or vice versa), too.

    Thank you Tartan for the tut and it would be perfect for a 'winter' one with snowflakes.

    Thank you so much for sharing such a detailed tutorial. I do believe I may be able to get my grand daughter interested in making a quilt with this technique!

    This was a fun distraction this morning. I happen to love mug rugs, so thought I would go small. I pretty much failed, but I still like it

    Had to take these with my phone, so quality is so so

    Anyway, next I decided I would try the "big girl" one, but really only wanted to do 7-inch circles because for some reason I have a lot of scrap that size. On both, I sewed down the scalloped borders. So I made this trivet size one for a girlfriend of mine. Apparently I am not the best at following directions. The center looked bad, so I gave it a new center.

    I think they turned out great! I really like the colours you used and how you arranged your petals.

    This is really beautiful. Makes a difference with the extra leaves and your stitching on them. Thanks for sharing

    This is a really great tute and thanks Tartan for showing us how to do this. Like everyone else's creations, too. Hope I can get one of these made by December.

    Thanks so much for the tutorial. They are so much fun to make. Love the idea of using different colors, Red/Green for Christmas, white/blue for snowflakes, oh my goodness, I could go on with more ideas. Have made red/green and white/green, now as my mind goes on, I need to get to my sewing room while the brain is hot...so many ideas that need to be acted on. Happy sewing/quilting today!!

    Cookie64, thanks for the link. I bought her templates and video at the quilt show a few years ago. Every year I stop by to see what new things she has.

    Just a quick question before I do this wrong, maybe! Do you cut the batting the same as the circle, or cut the batting the size including the seam allowance?
