    Nice!! Never thought of that either, thanks for sharing. Question- you give two strip sizes. You don't use both in this one dresden, right?

    I totally enjoy folks who think differently. This is a nice change from a "normal" Dresden. Have the ruler, but never use it. Thanks for the link. Now to go collect scraps!

    In the blog, she talks about her dresdens being different sizes, but one size per plate and she did 3 plates per size. very cute quilt.

    Just had a light bulb moment! I have a table topper/table runner swap coming up & needed a design for it. Think I'll use this way for it. Thanks again for the idea!

    Thanks for the link. I made a double tipped Dresden wall hanger last year and the part I hated the most is putting the circle in the middle. What a great way to avoid that problem.
