    Love it on the rosy/coral background, think you can do a smaller circle as it only needs to be about 1/4" bigger than the original hole. Pulling a yellow/gold out of one of the fabric would really make it pop like Vonnie said. Great job.

    The flowers are very pretty.

    I vote for yellow or gold for the centers.

    Hi all,
    If I could ask your opinion before I sew anything down. There's something....but I'm not sure what. Maybe I need to add something to the centers of the flowers. Maybe the flowers are too far apart. Thoughts and comments are soooo appreciated.

    They look great! I like them on the coral/red/pink/salmon colored background - not exactly sure what color it is, but they show up so nicely on it, much better than on the white or even the blue.

    They came together nicely so now I have 3 done and I'm just deciding what the background fabric, inner circles and boarder should be. So they are going to be flowers. I decide that I wanted it to be a wall hanging so I'm making the Dresden to be flowers with stems and leaves.
    Here's my progress to date.

    Kathy, throw in Snoopy/Peanuts with the dresden plates, and you really are the Dresden Queen! Every time I see Snoopy fabric, I think of you!

    Trust what bk says, it will shrink some once the blades are sewn together. I will say I'm not sure if it's just an optical illusion, but it seems like it could be too many blades for their length?...
