thanks to Dungeonquilter's tut I was able to do my own folded dahlia. There are a few things I need to adjust on the next one that I did not realize on this one such as using white thread instead of something to blend in when sewing down the squares and to use more contrasting fabric but overall I am happy with my first attempt. But I am already mulling over in my head several other colors to make this in for gifts.

THank you Dungeonquilter for such a great tut.......

I usually don't like green, but this is beautiful. Looks like a real flower from here.

Wow, your Dahlia has a totally different look than the others, most of which were softer gradiations.

I LOVE the way you've use all the different textures of green patterns for your petals.

It's really very lovely.

Will it be a pillow or something larger?

i like the greens you chose...i understand the change from the white thread...but i think it gives it another design aspect...

great job!
