    It's certainly far from perfect.

    Thank you very much.

    I hope to learn how to round the tops better.

    It looks like three beautiful china plates on a runner, very nice. I think it is would look so pretty on a buffet side table.

    Beautiful. You carefully cut and sewed the pieces so nicely. Very difficult style and you make it look easy (well, almost)!

    With the stuff you do you could do this with one hand tied behind your back! It isn't really curves much. You can sew the dresdens down with a zigzag around the edge if you don't want to turn the edge under. I like to use a herringbone embroidery stitch and I do it by hand. It is easy to do!!!

    I also sometimes baste the edge under on each blade before joining them together and then I just put it under my sewing machine needle and sew it down onto the background! Easy!

    This is my ebook on them

    Or you can see the basic direction for making the dresden kaleidoscope here
