    Found free tutorial for a block I love

    I originally found this civil war dresden block at http://northerndeb.blogspot.com/2009...0s-quilt.html# and wondered about the process to create it. Logically I knew the process but wanted the details. Well today I happened to find a tutorial on the web here: http://laren.blogspot.com.au/2012/04...den-plate.html
    That outlines the process with great results. Thought someone else might appreciate having it. Enjoy! Ann in TN

    Thank You. I also needed the details. This will put me on my way to making one of my favorite blocks.

    Pretty cool block. I saved the links and would like to try it one day. Have been working on DJ...so have collected more CW prints than I actually need.

    Thank you for the link. And I learned something today. Nope not about the block about me. I have done dresden blocks many times and am a little bored with traditional designs. I basically thought. "Oh another dresden block whatever" and was going to pass it by. Something told me to go ahead and look anyway. I did and I am really glad I did. While Civil War fabrics are not something I like.. I can see using this technique in other ways. So note to self don't be so sure you have seen everything to do with traditional blocks. lol

    Thanks. I love the Dresden spike block -- first time I've seen it. Love Dresden blocks and have made several different types of wall hangings plus one lap quilt. Thanks for the link to the tutorial.
