This is what I have been working on for the past week or so, a Giant Dahlia Quilt. It is one of those quilts that looks unattainable with its curved piecing and set in seams, but looks can be deceiving.
The process has been easier than I thought it would be. The worst part being the templates. Tracing and cutting out templates is not one of my favorite things to do.
The traditional layout and fabrics shown in the book has been one of my biggest hurdles. So, I am going with a brighter more scrappy approach in hopes of giving this quilt an updated look.
I am using this book here, circa 1984. A couple of months ago, I picked up this book up at a quilt show, and have been itching to try it out ever since.
Of course, it is never a good sign when you sew the first couple of pieces on backward, but I guess that is what a seam ripper is for. Wish me luck because tomorrow I am connecting the center burst (not shown) to the arcs…
Thanks for stopping by, and for all your continued support. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Have a great day!
