    I dont know whether there is a tutorial. I found a way that would make it possible to get them even littler: instead of sewing them the traditional way (a straigt line at the top and then turning it to the right side and get the point) I downsized the petals of a picture from a finished dresden plate and printed it on freezer paper.

    The freezer templates were ironed to the fabric and then cut with the usual 1/4" seamallowance. The 1/8 "seamallowance at the tip of the petals was pressed to the back and then I simply glued two petals accurately together and placed them on a piece of selfadhesive stabilizer from the embroidery machine. That way I was able to sew them together with the sewing machine without any distortion.Make six of those, cut the seamallowance back to 1/8, secure the sewing thread and then press it open......repeat till you have a dresden plate. :-)
    (oksewglad: its a piece of cake for you........)

    I hope this makes sence and thank you all for your feedback

    You've done it again! Another beautiful mini!!! Can't wait to see it finished. I agree, a white binding would be perfect.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Fantastic job! A light binding is great as a dark one would draw the eyes out.

    I am in awe of your talent. I can't imagine creating such a lovely quilt in this mini form. I too think you have a family heirloom. Thanks for sharing your talent and technique.

    Absolutely stunning, and such a pretty design. Yes, I agree with white for the binding to let the design take center stage. Nice job!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)
