    FOLDED DAHLIA WITH PICTURES (this time)

    Earlier this year I found the thread by dungeonquilter that was a tutorial on how to make a Folded Dahlia. Well, I fell in love with it and want to thank dungeonquilter for the great instructions. I made a bag with it and just had to share pictures.

    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, WINE IN THE OTHER, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO, what a ride!"

    That is fantastic. Your heart shaped button adds to it.

    Thanks for posting the source - will have to look for the tutorial, because your project looks intriguing.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    That looks like the same pattern I used in these Christmas toppers. I love it but it is definitely a lot of work.

    made one but being a house with dogs and cats, my pillows, couch throws get laundered and I was wondering how the dahlia fairs after the washing machine? have not put it out yet-sorta afraid.

    Wow! Thanks for the link. Just reading the directions and following along with the pictures made my brain itch. That is one awesome tutorial! Your dahlia is beautiful!
    One step at a time, always forward.

    I totally fell in love with these pcs. when "dungeonquilter" first put her tute on here & of course I went crazy making them. Now I have stacks of them & am wondering what to do with them. Yes, I want to make more. I am so pathetic.

    I have had four of these Folded Dahlias in my bathroom for at least ten years. There is one Somerset Patchwork and one large quilted cheater block, also. They are all mounted into 9 to 14 inch embroidery hoops. There is a piece of lace and a short ruffle around each one and some have a bow.

    I bought all of these at rummage sales! Apparently there was a fad, maybe 20 or more years ago where everyone was making them. Must have been before I was into crafting, or I would have been making them, too. LOL

    The strange thing about all this, is that they are all the same color family: brown, tan, orange, rust etc. Some even have the same fabrics. They all go together nicely in my gold and white bathroom. And they were accumulated over the course of several years at different rummage sales.
