    Top section Month 8 finished - remaining three underway, so slowly catching up. Not sure if I have sufficient room to add the leaf beside the petal flower, so will wait and see. I elected to cut the lavender "ring" as a ring, i.e. I needle-turned both the inner and outer sections on to the background fabric - less bulk that way. As a result my bright pink centre petals overlap the ring a little, which I quite like. Also, the pale lavender petal flower at the top was appliqued as per the pattern and I'm not really happy with it. May redo it, as it looks a bit "wonky", no matter which way I look at it and it will continue to bother me forever. For petals for the remaining borders, I have cut and appliqued them using the suggested method by Margo - thank you Margo! I like that method better! Sorry about the photos; no matter how times I have uploaded them, one remains upside down and the other one has the outer orange flowers cut off. I know when I'm beat and give up! Later.......amazingly, when I click on the photos, everything appears right way up and in entirity.

    I use soft fuse light. It does not gum up your needle and is not stiff or crunchy. Excellent for quilts.

    On my Bernina 890 I used the same blanket stitch. On the flowers that are raw edge I set the width at 1.2 and length at 2.5.

    My friend Margo has a great idea for the Petal Flower. She is making a “bow tie” template that combines two petals. Isn’t that brilliant?! Stitch one on top of the other, add the circle to finish it off.

    Month 8 and here is what I have done so far. Using flannel and decided to put the coneflowers in the corners
    instead of sawtooth stars. Birds are small and on the vines. Border is a from a Lori Smith pattern called Aunt
    Millies best. I love just using the BOM as a jump off place to make it look the way I see it in my mind.
