    Georgeous. Would love to try one but have to many projects in the que right now. I've got some pillowcase dresses to make and two quilt tops to sandwich and get quilted, a dresden table runner to finish up, a wall hanging that need to be finished and who knows what else. But your work is beautiful.

    I like it. You are doing a good job. Very pretty. Everyone is learning the pattern ahead of me. I am falling way behind.

    This is a lovely Dahlia star. It is one of the prettiest.
    Of course, I am partial to blue.

    Back in the early 1990s a group of us sewers/quilters went through a spell of making these and attaching them to the cover of round tins/ wooden boxes (different sizes) and filled them with sewing notions for Christmas gifts. They were a lot of fun to make... even made some decorative potholders with the folded dahlia too. Funny how everything that goes around... comes around again. I love it!

    Yes! I remember doing these. In fact I still have a beautiful Christmas one that my daughter made for me. I don't remember what she had in it, but I keep buttons in it now. Which brings me to my next question. What are people doing with these now? Is there a way to incorporate them into quilts?
