The centre circle and back fabric is a linen 'style' fabric I found (unlabelled) at Spotlight. The petals are made using favourite floral fabrics from my collection and the front background is Kona 'snow'.
The idea came from a pattern in 'Pillow Pop' by Heather Bostic and allowed me to use my dresden ruler by Darlene Zimmerman.
I appliqued the dresden bloom and circle on with a machined button-hole stitch. I have this on my Bernette 65 and it is one of the few things it gets used for - but is very handy to have! I went against my original plans and hand quilted the top together with perle cotton. I am pleased with this and must remind myself to try it again some time. The well rounded circle was made using a technique I read about in a book by Sarah Fielke - using a cardboard circle and aluminum foil.
