How to Quilt the Flower Flip Flop Border
Isn’t that such a sweet little flower design? To quilt the Flower Flip Flop design, start at the bottom of your border. Quilt up a little bit to create your stem. Now quilt three daisy petals, traveling towards the top of your border. Next quilt a loop for the center of your flower. You should be back where you began your first flower petal. Now you can quilt three more daisy petals, traveling back towards the top of your border. You’re back at the top of your border and now you can swing over to quilt another flower!
Talk Yourself Through the Design
I’ve said it many times before, but I’ll say it again 😉. I like to talk myself through my designs. It keeps me focused and it helps me remember the next step! For the Flower Flip Flop border I’m thinking to myself “1, 2, 3, and a loop. 1, 2, 3, next daisy.” You don’t have to say the same thing as me, anything will work as long as you can remember the steps.
