I twisted the traditional Dresden plates for our next block.
My tutorial is using a Dresden Plate Ruler. I’ve done a few dresden plate blocks in the past. I’ve enjoyed them but they’ve never turned out perfectly since I was using paper templates I printed off the web. The paper templates are just fine…I’m just not that picky to be accurate enough with them. This block was my first time using the ruler and I’m very HAPPY with the results!
You can print out free templates online if you don’t have the ruler and still make this blocks. I recommend getting it from the 2012 Craftsy FREE BOM class. We did Dresden plates in July. If your print out the class materials from that month you’ll also get the dresden templates.
