If you need a refresher on hand applique techniques...hop on over to the Applique Page!

Start by laying out your templates on the correct fabrics. You will need one 12-1/2" square of black for the background, one 2" x 6" strip of med pink solid, and one 8" square of light yellow solid, one 5" square of light to medium orange solid and one 8" x 12" rectangle of mint-ish green solid. Also, you will need thread to match each of the design colors Follow the directions below for order of placement :o)

Lightly crease your background square to find it's center in both directions, then pin on your "stems" pieces, laying the stems one over the other. Applique down using thread to match the stems. Then lay on and applique the leaves ...

Position six petals per flower so that they cover the stem ends and applique in place using thread to match the petals...

Then position an orange center circle over the middle of each flower and applique down using thread to match the centers. If you like, you could make the centers more dimensional by using small ruched orange strips in the center of each daffodil... on to Page 2!
