DQS#9 - Four Flowers at Last!

Well after a weekend of ironing, snipping and ironing again, I have all four flowers finished. I just have the circle bit in the middle to do. But that involves curves, yuck. I'll leave it till tomorrow to do that! I'm really pleased with how it is looking. Might have to pick another pattern for a quilt for me. Can't break the habit of making two now can we?

Gorgoues as is all your work. I love applique, and love the look of needleturn but have not tried it cos it looks hard. But I guess I should just try it and see how I go.

Your flowers are beautiful! I love Aunt Millie's garden too. I just had to laugh at your unrandom randomness! I have a very hard time with randomness and mine would look like yours, matching the petals up so that the "random" fabrics are even on each side! :-) I would never be able to just grab and throw petals on...I would have matched them too. I love how you even centered the flower on the motif on the white background! I just thought it was funny...it is just the way I would have done it! It really is going to be beautiful!
