Always start with ch 3 instead of first dc of rnd. End with sl st in first sc or third ( dc ) ch at beg of rnd unless otherwise stated.
Center Flower: With Peach, ch 6, join with sl st to form ring.
Rnd 1: Ch 1, 10 sc in ring, sl st in  flp of first sc to join.
Rnd 2: Ch 1, * ( sc, ch 3, sc ) in flp of sc, ch 3 * rep from * around. ( 20 ch 3 lps ).
Rnd 3: Ch 1, sl st in blp of first sc of rnd 1, work 2 dc in blp of each sc in rnd 1 ( 20 dc ), sl st in flp of first dc to join.
Rnd 4: Ch 1, * ( sc, ch 3, sc ) in flp of dc, ch 3 * rep from * around. ( 40 ch 3 lps ).
Rnd 5: Ch 1, sl st in blp of first dc of rnd 3, work 2 dc in blp of each dc in rnd 3 ( 40 dc ), sl st in flp of first dc to join.
Rnd 6: Rep rnd 4. ( 80 ch 3 lps ). Fasten off.
Rnd 7: Join Maize in blp of any dc in rnd 5, * 2 dc in blp of same dc, dc in blp of next 2 dc, ch 10, dc in blp of next 2 dc * rep from * around. ( 8 lps ).
Rnd 8: Sl st in next dc, work 21 dc in next ch 10 lp, skip 2 dc, sl st in third dc in group of 6 dc * rep from * around.
(  8 petals ). Fasten off.
Rnd 9: Join Peach with a sl st between any 2 petals, ch 1, * sc between two petals, skip first dc of next petal, sc in each of next 8 dc, ( sc, ch 3, sc ) in next dc, ( sc, ch 5, sc ) in next dc, ( sc, ch 3, sc ) in next dc, sc in each of next 8 dc, skip last dc * rep from around. Fasten off.
Successive Flowers: Make 6 more flowers same as first flower, joining each to center flower and to previous flower with sl st in each corresponding loop of ch 5 at tips to corresponding petals while completing last rnd. ( see diagram ). Note: Two flowers are joined on opposite sides of center flower with sl st in each of 2 consecutive and corresponding petals. Remaining flowers are joined to each other and to 1 corresponding petal of center flower.
Border:
Rnd 1: Locate a flower with 4 free petals on outer edge, join Maize in ch 5 loop at tip of second petal, ch 1, ** sc in ch 5 loop at tip of petal, ch 15, sc in ch 5 loop at tip of next petal, * ch 17, puff st in ch 5 loop of next petal, puff st in ch 5 loop at tip of first free petal of next flower, ch 17, ( sc in ch 5 loop at tip of next petal, ch 15 ) twice, sc in ch 5 loop at tip of next petal * rep from * once more, ch 17, puff st in ch 5 loop at tip of next petal, puff st in ch 5 loop at tip of first free petal of next flower, ch 17 ** rep from ** around.
