    I havent used mirrors. The class that I took we find the beginning of each repeat in the fabric. Then I cut the fabric based on where the repeats are. Then when I have twelve repeats of the fabric depending on how many blades Im using in my DP I then layer the fabrics. Using long qulting pins to go through coordinating dots or any other spot that can be easily identified to line up the fabrics. Usually end up with eight to nine pins. Then put pieces of cork on the end of the pins to keep fabric on pins . Then I do a basting zig zag stitch about three inches or so in a zig zag up and across the stack of fabric. This holds all the fabric lined up for cutting. Remove the pins and then cut as many of the template stacks as I can from the stack of fabric. I usually get from eight to nine DP's from one stack of repeats. I wish I could remember what the name of the class was. I took it at my LQS.
    Have an awesome day!

    I cut mine with the fan ruler, a little thinner than the dresden ruler I got by Darlene Zimmermen. I had to use 24 blades to get it to lay flat. I made 30 plates, think I will have enough for two quilts. probably took me 2-3 weeks. It is matchy matchy. Next I want to do either a scrappy or RWB. We'll see, as I usually change my mind and do a different pattern altogether.

    Everyone's plates are so beautiful. Sorry to butt in.

    OMGoodness Sulabug, those blocks are simply gorgeous....of course they're done in my colors. That's going to make a very striking quilt.

    wooooohooooooo!!!! I did it!! I have cut and pieced Jan Whirling star 3 times trying to figure out why the pieces did NOT fit.... After cutting #4 I noticed that I had not added 1/4 seam allowance on the top of trapezes.. Needless to say when you smarten up and cut all pieces as should be cut ,they do fit. I got so exasperated with it I set it aside and started on the March bom. it went together like a sweet dream. I started late and have stumbled along for awhile but will soon be caught up with you. [ hopefully] I am hand piecing my boms and excited to finally have sucess on 3 blocks . will try to post pics when I get this pc figured out so I can load . I have sewn block patterns but these are stretching my ability. I love all the posts here there are some beautiful blocks here.

    Got it done! My hand sewing leaves a lot to be desired...but I did it and I love it. Have to make 3 four inch blocks and the bottom half of the quilt is sewn together and done...now for the next six months. Have loved these blocks, they make an interesting quilt....

    I finished mine also, well almost. The Dresden plate finished one inch too large. BUT I have lot's of fabric to make another. Overall, this has been my favorite block to do and will end up as a pillow.
