What are you most proud of? I made this as a gift for my Sister-In-Law. 23 of us are converging at their Gettysburg farm for Thanksgiving and this is a hostess gift.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This project is great way to use AC scraps, even tiny ones will work for the petals of the doily. I found it easier and faster to embroider the eyelets and then sew the petals onto the base. Also the bottom corners of each petal should be aligned with the 1/2 inch seam allowance so that the corners are caught between the two layers of fabric. The middle of the petal will be about 1/16 inch over the SA but everything will be neatly enclosed. I had to double pin the petals to keep them in the right spot as worked around the circle. This is a quick project and now that I've used up all of my AC fabric I can order more! :)

This is so pretty! What is the width of petals, and diameter of circle that it all worked out so perfect, is there a formula you used!

No forumula I just kinds winged it, the smaller doily is 7.5 inches in diamter and for the petals just trace off the full size petal and remove the 1/4 inch seam allowance. This will give you a smallerpetal that will perfectly fit around the smaller doily. SA is still .25 inches on the samller one.
