    That is exactly what you do. Just fold it over at the top and stitch from the fold outwards. Then, turn the point right side out and it makes a point.

    There is a video in the Missouri Star Quilt Co.'s tutorial section. Here it is: http://tutorials.missouriquiltco.com/

    Go to that site and all their videos are listed. There's one for the Dresden Plate. I've been looking at that myself lately.

    Go to missouri star quilting company and you will find a link to a great tutorial. Just be careful--I got addicted after seeing it. froggyintexas

    Dresden Plate is my favorite pattern!, and this method of piecing them is so quick! love it. Hope you will also.
