more zinnias

Hope you aren't too tired of my zinnias. I tried Mary's idea out and it seems to have worked well. Thanks again! I ended up using 1 1/4 in. strips for the petals - not too skinny - not too fat.
This isn't the setting I'll use but wanted to see how they would look in the background.
Sarah mentioned that Jan Mullen has something similar called daisiez. She sure does! I found her website (stargazey.com) and sure enough, what we came up with looks a lot like her daisiez.
It's interesting - doesn't bother me - hope it doesn't bother her :)

These are great, Cheryl! I really like your fabric choices, and the green/blue batik is great as a background. It's going to look like a summer quilt.

I love your zinnias. As for re-inventing daisez.. all I can say is GMTA.

These look great. I love the width - you're right, not too wide not too narrow.

These look fabulous! It's amazing what a difference a simple corner triangle makes to the whole.
