Anyway, I'm tickled to have finished the center medallion. I cut that background piece to a 21-1/2" square per the instructions, and added the first triangle border. So far, so good.
Next, in the white triangles created by the addition of the first border, there's more applique.
Here I've pencil-outlined the shapes on the back of the fabric.
You can see this may be a bit of a challenge to applique as one of the motifs covers several seams.
Still, I'm very much liking the design, and I think it will be even prettier when the piecing includes the aqua- and teal-colored prints I've selected.
Oh, and did you notice the perfectly round, one centimeter purple circles in the daisy center? Those are thanks to a gem of a friend, the ingenious and talented Down Under Di. She's also making SnoMed, and took the time to write a lovely blog tutorial for making tiny, perfect circles using sequins (of all things!). Be sure to check it out.
