Q&A with Oleo

akers.deb363057 asked:
This is oone of my favorite flowers I'd like to learn how to make this. Very pretty!
Oleo answered:
There are whole books out there about making dahlia quilts, but I made this up myself. I just made a template for the petals and made each petal by sewing two petals together and then turning them inside out. I gathered the open end of the center petals. hand sewed the petals to a backing fabric. the center is a yo yo.
