Petals

 The petals needed to be curved and in specific sizes so I traced them from my drawing and then flip the tracing paper and retraced them with the fusible.  I placed the petals on my fabric choices and fused them on.  Then each was cut and placed on the already cut seed center of the sunflower.

 I kept my drawing close with the numbers of each petal on both the drawing and the fusible along with the color.

 Once I was happy with the construction of the sunflower petals I fused them on top of my teflon sheet.

Then I place it where my paper was on the quilt top to see how it was looking.  (You can see I have already cut the center for one other one.)  I like how it is looking so tomorrow I will add the leaves and the connection to the stem at the top of the petals.   Once that is done I will audition it again and tweak whatever needs tweaking before fusing it to the quilt top.

I need to go through my files and see if I can find something to try fusible with. I do have an old ship I took in our harbor, maybe something for my husband's office.
