    As soon as I saw jwatmough's gorgeous folded dahlia pillow (here: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-125925-1.htm) I knew I had to try one myself. Then I found dungeonquilter's tutorial (here: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-116058-1.htm) and trying it moved to the top of my list of things to do.

    This weekend, the stars aligned-Hubby and the boys were fishing, and I had a fresh stack of FQ's from a shopping expedition on Saturday. This is what I came up with. I plan on making a pillow out of it, for my end of the couch. Maybe I'll get ambitious and make it an octagonal pillow; I haven't decided yet. I still need to tack the insides of the points down, but overall I'm pretty pleased. Also, I'm glad I got hooked on origami when we were living in Japan; I had no trouble at all with the folds.

    And very many thanks to you for such an inspiring tutorial, you enabler, you! :-P

    Seriously-nice pics, clear instructions...my iPad was sitting on the end of my ironing board while I got started. Thanks for posting it!

    That is lovely, and it would fit nicely on my brown couch.
    That will go on my "to do" list, right after the first 20 or 30 things I must start, finish, or find.

    This is beautiful. I have the pattern to make a pot holder and I guess I just need larger pieces to make a pillow. From 2"x3" would you double them for 4"x6"?
