There is something that I forgot to show you........so I thought while I was at it, I'd sorta fill in the blanks on how to make it. I did post the directions for something similar a year or two ago, but everyone needs a re-fresher every once and awhile. Do you remember my crayon quilts? YOU will love this!!! Soooooo fun and easy and they turn out almost like a watercolor picture. This one I did as a mug rug. I think it was about 8 inches square. (I'd measure it, but I already gave it to a friend to hang in her house as a spring decor.)
First of all, I want you to get a solid piece of paper and draw a flower. Try to make the petals go off the outside of your square. (Or you could make the square bigger to start and trim it later, it really doesn't matter.) Now, cut yourself a hunk of solid white fabric a bit bigger than the drawn flower and with a pencil, lightly trace the drawn flower onto your white fabric. (Hint: If you cannot see the image, darken your drawn flower with a sharpie marker, but wait until it's dry before tracing.) After that is done, iron a piece of freezer paper (shiny side down) to the back of your white fabric. This stiffens it enough so that you can color it without the fabric shifting.) Get out your Crayola crayons and color to your hearts content!! Note that I had plenty of white fabric on the side of the image to test colors, so you might want to consider cutting a bigger white piece of fabric than you would need.
When it is done to your liking, remove the freezer paper from the back, lay a piece of cheap muslin on the top of your flower and iron it until you smell the wax. DO NOT BURN!!! This seals the colors and protects your iron at the same time!!
Next, fuse the back of the flower with a piece of fusible fleece, or thin batting and pin to temporarily adhere. Stitch around the flowers with white thread and remove pins. Do any fancy stitching now like the french knots in the middle for effect.
Now for the tricky part. Use a kids scissors with blunt ends and cut as close to the batting as possible. Discard your cut pieces. This procedure will make your flowers POP as they will now have two layers of batting. Now, sandwich as you would for any other quilt.
