Morning Glory: Making Part 7

This month it's time to make the corner triangle blocks - they're quarter Dresdens with overlapping petals which are completed using applique. This is a perfect block for showing off some stunning fussy cutting. Or, like me, you might simply enjoy seeing your selected fabrics harmoniously come together.
First up, it's time to prep all the Templates. I wish there was a quick way to end up with all the right pieces just waiting for assembly - but there isn't! Take your time and make sure your pieces are all accurate.
There are 8 x wedges forming the Dresden Triangle Block. Start by appliqueing the curved edge wedge first, as below

 turning over the petal top edges
and front view
Next, it's time to create the 'blade' layer
stitch from pin to pin marked below
and sew between the same lines

Next, sew in the blade tips

Now that all the elements are assembled, it's time to bring them together
Using the constructed pattern as a guide, 
 I positioned my pieces, overlapping with small dabs of Roxanne Basting Glue
