use12 x 2 sided squares about 8 inch square, i'm not sure of the size exactly. different size squares will make different size wreaths. join a pair at a time back sides together, stitching along the lines as in this pix...from middle of one side to about 1.5 inches from the corner of the adjacent side. i hope that is clear. this is not a proper pattern just the info i have gathered from various info and discussion with an experienced qulting friend.
