Default Dresden plate?

I saw a picture on Pinterest, it was the shape of a Dresden plate.
But it had just 6 petals that were rounded at the top.
can someone point me in the direction to find a tutorial on this?

It sounds like a flower pattern rather then a Dresden Plate. You could make your own pattern by folding a piece of paper in half and then fold the halves into 3 equal sections. Find a round object the matches the width of the 1/3 sections and draw the curved ends, cut the curves ends with scissors and then open up the paper. You should have a 6 petalled shape. You can cut one section out and add seam allowances to the straight sides of the petal and you have your template.

A circle is 360 degrees, divide that by 6, you get 60, so each "petal" would be 60 degrees, that is marked on almost all your rulers.
