First I painted my 16x16 canvas black.
Then I started on the flower. I cut the quilt squares into strips about 1.5-2 inches wide. I then cut out a circle the size I wanted the flower to be using scrap fabric so I'd have something to sew the fabric strips to.
I then folded a fabric strip lengthwise in half and pinned it down to the scrap fabric circle. I folded/pinched the fabric then stuck a pin in it to make it stay and continued that until I had my circle strip.
After that circle was finished I hand stitched it to the fabric circle then started my next layer and repeated that until the circle was full, making sure to get the stitches where the folds were so they didn't come apart.
I then hot glued a shiny button in the middle. (you could sew it but Im all about the hot glue..nice and messy. yes!) The again used my hot glue to secure the flower to my canvas and
