Mille-Fleurs pattern ready - and a Draw!

I know Forget-Me-(K)not was a very strong contender so I hope I won't disappoint too many of you but I went with a French name again.  Mille-Fleurs just really appealed to me and although I kept swapping the names around, in the end, Mille-Fleurs won.




As I mentioned before, I did things slightly differently in this pattern so I provided a lot of pictures to make sure it was all clear and there is also a video available that shows how to make the petals.



Thank you very much to my testers who gave me lots of good feedback!




I'm going to have a draw to win copies of this pattern.  There will be three winners.  If you'd like to be entered, please leave a comment on this post.  I will make the draw on Friday evening (UK time).

Best wishes,
Frivole

    1. Hi Michelle, it's an interesting blue isn't it? It's called Upper Atmosphere and is by Karey Solomon. I should tat a few more flowers in it an re-post as this doesn't show the full range of this thread! But I'd made a mistake so I just showed the one flower. :-)

  2. What a lovely pattern! I am newly returned to tatting after an absence of many years, and am amazed at all the new designs and techniques. I especially liked that this one can be an edging or a motif.
