    Hi, Sandy
    I am not sure I can help you any more that the pictures.
    Try drawing the fold lines on your background. You need to draw a + and an X.
    I lined up my fabrics on my cutting board in order to have the spacing even on each stack.
    Sew from the center out along the center of this first stack.
    Fold one side over on top of the other.
    Place the next stack on the next line and sew again.
    Repeat this all the way around for 8 stacks, folding the previous ones out of the way.
    Once they are all sewn, take 2 adjacent stacks and fold them away from each other.
    For the first (center most) petal, fold under twice and lay flat in middle. Now repeat for the other side.
    For the second and all the rest, fold under once and lay flat in middle and then one on the other side.
    Keep alternating sides.
    Repeat these steps all around.
    I hand stitched with big basting stitches to hold in place before adding the next layer.
    Debra

    Being hopeless at any language even my own English I do appreciate the time and effort you took to do one in English.
    Thank you.

    My guild had a " challenge quilt " using a specific fabric. It was striped with several blues and white. I made this and it came out well.

    This has got to be one of the most prettiest things I have ever seen. I copied and it is in my bucket list to do when I get good enough. Thanks so very much for posting this.

    Hi Dungeonquilter, I know this is an old tutorial But I wonder if you could explain how to finish the folded Dahlia after the folding is done. The raw edges are exposed what do you do with them? Thank you for your time. peterparley

    This is just so cool! I really want to do one of these to hang in my quilting room. Now, just to pick the fabrics...ohhh, where do I begin? LOL :-)
    Creative clutter is better than idle neatness.

    I just added borders that hid all the raw edges. I did not take a picture of it once it was finished. Gave it away as a gift, so can't take one now.

    Your Dahlia is gorgeous and thank you so much for the instructions. I would like to try this once I get better at quilting. It's so unique.

    Many thanks to you for showing us all the steps with pictures. I will definitely try to make one in the new year. Right now, I have too many Christmas projects I have to complete. Thanks again!

    Beautiful. I made mine isinglass 21/2inch stripes. Could use jelly roll. I found it very easy to fold even though small
    Can you see the mistake. It's staying

    Wow that is beautiful and I love the color of your fabrics. Thank you for teaching us how to do this.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    The 2 stars I did a pillow turn as I hate doing binding & attached a ribbon to hang. Did the same on the dahlia but am not happy how my circle turned out...still trying to decide what to do with it.
    I made the folded stars years ago. I put them in wooden hoops when done and hung them up. I really am talking about over 25 yrs. ago. I enjoyed folding the fabrics etc.

    I don't see a mistake. Looks great! I think I need to do some more of these.
