It measures 7.5 inches and tatted in Lizbeth Size 40 threads in Purple Dark (#633) and Honey Drizzle (#180). I like the subtle colour changes in Honey Drizzle but not the areas with a little light beige. Difficult to notice now but it was obvious while I was tatting it. I was also anticipating that the petals would be longer than this. The centre did not lay flat. Maybe it is the blocking.
Anyway this pattern is called Sunburst on page 11 of 'The Tatter's Treasure Chest' book edited by Mary Carolyn Waldrep. In the pattern a Size 30 thread was used and the completed doily measured 8 inches in diameter.
