A DAHLIA BUD

I cut out pieces for the Dahlia quilt but as it progressed, 
I wasn't happy with the first two colors.
I was looking through the stash for an orange and found this stripe of all the right colors for the middle!
Oh, yes, much more interesting for a center of this flower 
than all the same color!
I do have to go back to the store for a better color for the last row--a nice dark, dusty orange for the large template and maybe another row with the striped red/pink/white fabric!
I like this kind of gardening, too!
