Now draft the petal shape.
Paper and a compass would be good at this point! If you don't have a compass, you can use
the edge of a can, or a small plate or glass! Draw a perfect 3-1/2" square. Measure
in 1/4" from each corner and mark these points. With the point of your compass in the
upper right corner, draw an arc that connects the lower right and upper left corners. With
the point of your compass in the lower left corner draw an arc going from the upper left
corner to the lower right corner. Cut this shape out, and stick it to a slightly larger
piece of paper. Using a ruler and your compass again...add 1/4" for a seam allowance
all around. Cut out this new shape, and it will be your petal template. You may transfer
this to template plastic or cardboard if you like! Cut out two of each color
edges under 1/4"...
