The Size option:

  1. The size sets the distance from the center point to
    the patches. The smaller the size setting, the closer the patches are to the center of the
    block. 

    Notice that in the first image the size was 4.0 inches and the flowers were layered over
    each other.  As the size increased the flowers moved further apart.

Set the size to 4.875

Radial and Offset:

  1. The Radial option sets the number of units in the wreath. 
    The Appliquéd Flower from step 1 is one unit. In this example, when you set radials to 4,
    you will have 4 units repeating around the center.   Please note:  a unit
    can be one patch or a number of patches. Set the Radial to 4.
  2. The Offset option allows you to change the orientation off
    all the units at one time. The units will move in a circular fashion while facing in the
    same direction.  in the image to the right the offset is 45 degrees different from
    the original picture.  Set the Offset to 0.
