Step 1:

Sew the patches together using the quarter-inch seam. Start sewing the first 3 rows, then put them all together. Once the 9 patch is complete, take your five-inch backing and place them together. Then get a pair of scissors and cut corners in a curve line.

Step 2:

Get the two pieces of 3-in strips and put the right sides together. Using a ruler, measure eight 3 x 3 in squares from the two strips, then cut them. Now you have 8 sets. Then sew two sides with a quarter-inch seam. Next, cut a curve to the corner that you did not sew. Repeat for the remaining sets.

Step 3:

Next, turn the petals right side out. Cut a bit of the corner, then pull them out. Using a bamboo skewer, poke the corner. Once you are done with the petals, press them with an iron.

Step 4:

Get a needle and do a basting stitch along the curved edge. Tug it a little bit to gather together. Repeat for the remaining petals. Gather all your petals and put one on each side. Secure it by pinning them on the middle of the petals, not on the edges. Now add the petals to the corners. Then using the sewing machine, baste the 9 patches and petals together. Next, add the backing. Pin the right side and make sure the petals are not poking out. Leave an opening to one side at least 2 inches.
