Lots of options and variations are open to you with this optional class project. If you are experienced with quilting, the pattern works well. I really needed a new wreath pattern.
I love this one. Have made one for myself and a friend. Someone who saw mine has asked me to make one for them! Needed a new wreath pattern for the holidays and this one surely fit the bill.
I have the pattern and the supplies needed to make a wreath but have not yet done so — this may be the inspiration I need to finally get around to it. One question I have, not about your wreath but about the one picture where there appears to be a laser light along your stitching line — is that part of your machine, an add-on to the machine or just an illustration added to your picture?
I'm like you. I need my instructions to be step by step. I'm glad they were helpful! Thank you ever so much for this. I have only made three so far, but this will be my new method! Now to find some low-priced buttons.
Which do you recommend? Thank you. I have the pattern in my cart and was just waiting to see what kind of stabilizer to use.
DO NOT use scissors, pins or anything which could mark or cut the fabric. Top stitch around the edge, which gives a nice professional looking finish and closes the turning gap at the same time. Pair up the squares and sew along the marked stitch lines. This will join up all 12 petals and the mat should lay flat. To give the petals their delicate curves we will sew a top stitched spine through the centre of each panel. Now on the final stage of sewing the tips of the petals together.
Take the edges of the panel and draw them together across the centre of the base. Pin all 12 to make sure you have them meeting correctly. This will give you a good idea of how the final mat will look. I use the button hole stitch set with a stitch length of 0 and using step 2 to join the petals together.
