Art Lady -- did you sew your petals on with yard or with thread?
Thanks!

With yarn. The same yarn I seamed with: a light dk weight cotton in the same shade as Sylvi! It was much easier to work with than Polar!

i am using the Briggs and Little Atlantic in red as the pattern calls for -- should I use that or buy some different yarn that matches that isn't so bulky?

Please use the Briggs & Little ATLANTIC! You will definitely need a yarn that bulky. I haven't heard anything negative about it.
Everyone over in the Ravelry Sylvi Group got 'gauge' and didn't have any super-normous stretching issues. They're all real happy with it!

Let us know how things progress!

I think she meant should she seam with the B&L.

???

I can't say because I haven't done my seaming yet, but I did buy a smaller gauge yarn also. Cascade 220 (worsted) instead of my bulky 109.

Oh!

Well, here's what I say: try to seam with the B&L yarn, and see if it pulls through the mattress lacing pretty easy and without busting. It should work fine. And another bonus might be that it will 'fortify' the raglan seams!

I plan on using the B& L yarn for the seams... I was just wondering if I should use something different to sew on the flower petals....

I'd use something lighter weight for that, same color if possible.
