Piecing the Quilt Top:
- Sew the gray Mini Tumblers together, 13 across by 14 down to form the background.
- Fold the wider end of the Dresden Plate right sides together. Sew the tops of the Dresden Plates together to create the petal point. See Diagram 1. Turn right side out and iron down. See Diagram 2. This creates a finished rolled over petal point. Repeat 20 times.
- Sew all 21 petals together into flower shape. Press the seams open.
- Place the 4" yellow and nonwoven fusible interfacing Circles right sides together and sew along the edge. Notch the outside within the seam allowances. Clip a 2" hole in the center of the nonwoven fusible interfacing Circle. Turn right side out. Press.
- Place the 5" Dresden Plate leaf and nonwoven fusible interfacing leaf right sides together and sew along the edge. Notch the outside within the seam allowances. Clip a 1 1/2" hole in the center of the nonwoven fusible interfacing leaf. Turn right side out. Press.
- Repeat step 5 for the second leaf and the Tumbler flowerpot.
- Fold the flower stem right sides together, along its length and sew down the seam. Turn right side out and press with the seam centered on the back side of the stem.
- Pin flower, stem, leaf and flowerpot pieces as desired into the background and stitch down using a zigzag or satin stitch.
- Layer the backing, batting and quilt top. Quilt by hand or machine, as desired.
- Sew binding strips together to form one long strip. Fold wrong sides together lengthwise and press.
- With a 1/4" seam, sew the raw edges of the binding to the edges of the right side of the quilt. Turn the folded edge of the binding to the back side of the quilt and stitch in place by hand, mitering the corners.
