    The EZ Dresden Ruler lets you cut blades for different sizes.

    On the Quilt in a Day website

    http://quiltinaday.com/theater/library.html

    you can watch a video on Dresden Plates. It's under Egg Money Quilts.

    There is also a good video on Missouri Star Quilt Company

    http://tutorials.missouriquiltco.com/

    It is under Introduction to Quilting.

    There are different sizes and shapes of the dresden block-I can send you a great pattern (e-mailed) I made a number of years ago and posted a pic of it on this board a few months ago. It isn't hard-I simply made the template out of clear plastic. PM me if you need a pattern. The blocks finish at 12 3/4" and the finished quilt measures 67 3/4" square. It does have some border applique, but that could be optional if you just want a plain border.

    Here's a link to my post on the Dresden Plate I've been working on the past couple of weeks.

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-89035-1.htm

    This is my first Dresden Plate also...I'm finding I really like the template and method that I'm using so far. (There are links in my post to both.)

    Can't wait to see pics of yours too!

    Some of the blades will be pointed, some squared off and then you stitch them to make the points before sewing them together...
    Some are made with a hole in the center for a round center piece, others are sewn without... :D:D:D
