    They are a challenge but fun. Once I put all of the info. I've learned this wk. from board members mine should turn out better. Once you start constructing one, you don't want to stop til all 8 sections are done.
    I thought my first one (the pink/burgandy one) would just be a practice pc. but it turned out beaut.

    These are amazing. My sister loves dahlias; I may have to learn this technique and create one for her. Thank you for sharing.

    Did you try it using less fabric like I suggested? Hope the measurements I posted helped. It is absolutely gorgeous.

    I think yours is really really nice, they look so good. I did one something similar - but smaller - in Christmas fabric ( please see my Avatar ) and they are very addictive !! Great !!

    dungeonquilter then went ahead and wrote a detailed version (with fabulous pictures) in English as she made her first Dahlia.

    Click on the link at the top of this tutorial - it goes back to tothenci's original post and includes great pictures of her fabulous Dahlias.

    And the other day candlequilter tried it using a reduced amount of fabric to cut down on the bulk. Her results are here:

    So pretty!! My Grandma had done a couple of pillows like this back in the 60's and I had completely forgotten about them until I saw yours.
    Good job!

    Hi Sherril,
    Yes I used your measurements. It did create less bulk so it was a little flatter. Still has a little puff which I like. Thanks so much for your help.

    Next one, I will do different folds to see if that's why my pcs. don't meet. I finally fanned ea. one out a little as I went to make them overlap.

    I'm so grateful for the help I've gotten with this. I hope it encourages others to try this now.
