How do you do an applique flower with 4 layers?

This was a question posed to us by Sandra: and here is my answer:

 

The easiest way to do this layered flower is to put the first piece down – i.e. the largest, and sew all the way round; turn the work over and trim away the excess fabric (i.e. the background fabric) from beneath the flower leaving approx 1/4″  (if you watch the tip for the grandmother’s fan you will see what I mean;)click here:

then add the second, smaller flower, turn the work over and again trim away the excess fabric;   and you then repeat for each of the layers – that way you keep the fabric from being very bulky and it is easier to quilt through – even by hand.
