    I am loving these folded Dahlia's - I made this one yesterday - I am thinking about making it into a throw pillow - Everyone in my family will either be thrilled or saying "not another one of those."

    If your family is smart, their response will be "that is for me, right?" Beautiful work and colors used!

    Oh WoW!!! These dahlia's get prettier as they come!! Really do love this one!! Did you see the one that someone posted the other day...she mounted it in a large embroidery hoop and added lace around the edge and hung it on her wall. One could also do a ruffle out of some of your fabric instead of lace. Maybe if family doesn't like it as a pillow you could use it on your bed!!

    OH Fabulous! These remind me of those "folded stars" of years past. I make something like these from ribbons.

    Just finished making this into a throw pillow with an envelope back - Now I have to plan another one. These are so fun. Thanks everyone for looking.

    It is beautiful. And the main thing is that you are having fun. Ignore the family
