Fusing Instructions:

  1. On the paper side of the webbing, trace 12 large petals, 24 small petals, 5 leaves, 3 small center circles, and 1 large center circle. Leave about ½ “ between pieces. Roughly cut out pieces.
  2. Following the manufacturers instructions, fuse the pattern pieces to the wrong side of the fabric. Use the above cutting instructions as a guide for what fabric to use. When cool, cut out individual pieces.

Center Panel Construction:

  1. Remove the paper from the back of the pattern pieces.
  2. Using the quilt picture as a guide, arrange the flower pieces on the 30 ½”x 40 ½” DD19 Black. The petals of some of the flowers will hang off the edge of the background.
  3. Using the manufacturers instructions, fuse the flowers to the background. Be careful not to fuse the flower pieces that hang off the background to the ironing board.
  4. When cool, trim off the excess flower pieces.
  5. Use your favorite stitch on the sewing machine to sew around all the flower petals, leaves, and centers.

Adding the Borders:

  1. Sew the 2- 2 ½”x 40 ½” DD18 Pink to the long sides of the center. Press.
  2. Sew the 2- 2 ½”x 34 ½” DD18 Pink to the top and bottom of the center. Press.
  3. Sew the 2- 6 1/4”x 44 ½” DD10 Black to the long sides of the center. Press.
  4. Sew the 2- 2 ½”x 46” DD10 Black to the top and bottom of the center. Press.


  1. Sew the two, 1 1/2 yd pieces together along the selvedge edge to make the backing.
  2. Layer the backing, batting, and quilt top. Quilt by hand or machine, as desired.
  3. Sew the binding strips together to form one long strip. Fold the binding in half, lengthwise, with wrong sides together and press. Sew the raw edges of the binding to the edges of the right side of the quilt.
  4. Turn the folded edge of the binding to the back side of the quilt and stitch in place by hand, mitering the corners.
