    Here is a folded Dahlia that I have been playing around with. Have changed the fabric around some. I am including pictures of the completed 1 that looks a mess and also the wedges that the fabric is moved around some.

    I have seen quite a few of these lately and have just fallen in love with me. This one is especially beautiful. is there a book on this pattern?

    Looking great! I really like #1 and #2 wedges the best due to the dark color on the outside..... it seems to draw my attention to the details better.
    We may live close to each other and just not realize it.
