From background fabric, cut:
(1) 4½” square OR 6½” square OR 12½” square*

From fabric 1, cut:
{A} (6) petals from Petal Template
{B} (1) circle from Circle Template

From fabric 2, cut:
{A} (6) petals from Petal Template

*NOTE: Instead of cutting a background square, you can also applique the petals and center directly on to the back of the completed quilt.

Applique tools for preferred method

Permanent marking pen for adding text

INSTRUCTIONS

STEP 1. PREPARE BACKGROUND

Skip to step 2 if you plan to applique the pieces directly on the back of the finished quilt.

Note, background lines have been added as a guide to center petals or if you want to use for different background fabrics. If you are using one piece of background fabric I suggest you fold in half both directions and finger press to find center placement.

For a very scrappy label, you can make each quadrant have a different background fabric. For the 4" finished label, use (4) 2½" squares stitched together. For the 6" finished label, use (4) 3½" squares stitched together. For the 12" finished label, use (4) 6½" squares stitched together.

STEP 2. APPLIQUE PETALS AND CENTER

Cut petals from chosen fabrics. Add text if desired, being sure to stay well inside of the seam allowance.

You can appliqué three petals to each square than stitch four squares together or stitch all 12 petals together and center on background to appliqué in place (recommended method for adding the applique directly to the back of finished quilt).

Add center circle.

We hope you enjoyed making the quilt as much as all of us enjoy designing it and that you met a few new friends along the way.

Wishing you all good health and happiness!
