|For the wreath you need to make
12 petals. Stitch the outer edges of the petals together by hand from the
back side, by holding the petals face to face, until the wreath is
finished. Prepare a big enough background square and sew down the wreath
only at the small formed triangles by using little beads. Add borders,
quilt your piece and put on the binding. Don't forget to add a sleeve at
the back for hanging.
Embellish the wreath with ribbons, buttons and more.
Enjoy your new quilt.
