  2. Hi Teresa, I hv made the motifs and they are simply beautiful but I still cant join them. i followed ur video on you-tube but i guess am too dumb. Is there an easier alternative? I tried joining the petals with a sl st but they are bunching up. Can i use chs to join effectively? Pls help...thanks again

  3. Valerie,
    You can modify the pattern and do chains around the motif and connect them that way.
