Friday Flower Dahlia

We are almost halfway through the flower blocks and this week's flower is the dahlia. Dahlias come in many colors and shapes. I snapped these photos of dahlias a few years back when living in Nelson, New Zealand. Actually, as I think about it, it is now 10 years since I lived in Nelson so I guess it is more than a few.

I really like the spiky dahlias

This one is pretty in its two colors

I thought the orange petals were extra pretty

My block has two flowers. The larger flower is made up of 23 petals which is a total of 47 pieces. I used darker centers to help define each petal. 

I really like the dahlia leaves too. Notice the veins I stitched in each. My finished block looks like this.
