Hawaiian Applique Pillow

  Ok, first I looked up colors of Hibiscus to see what I'd like.  But of course I chose something different.  I am using a black "mottled" background and wanted my flower to "pop".  So I chose a Orange Batik.

  Here is the fabric getting auditioned.  I traced my flower petals on Mylar and cut them out.  Then I use the frame to position over fabric til I get the desired petal with color combination.
  Now I am ready to needle turn them down to my background.  What you see is the placement template laying onto the pillow fabric for petal placement.
