Amelia Box..complete pattern


Belinda Flower new pattern

Amelia Flower below
 Yesterday I played with an old Christmas Decoration I designed in 2013....
and came up with a new design I'm calling
 I played with colour and joining 4 together 

 I added a fill-in motif for the large hole that was created when 4 Amelia's were joined together

 I have been modifying two of the original Christmas Decorations...
the four point and the 6point the new 'Amelia Flower' came from the 4 point

6Point Christmas Decoration has become the
'Belinda Flower'

 The first option would be great as an individual flower with 6 separate petals, but a little crowded and not easy to join together.
 Flower mark 1.

Amelia and Belinda mark 1 below similar size
 Belinda mark 1 would be great as a layered flower...

layered with the Amelia Flower

  A less full version, worked better when joined together

side by side the Belinda mark1 and Belinda final design
 The only difference from the original Christmas decoration is in the 4th round, but they look very different
