    Use teflon foot, lighten foot pressure to 1, use size 14 needle, use pressing cloth & wool setting (then I leave the cloth on top & hand press till cooler--keeps it flatter). Ripping is not advised as it leaves little holes. So, until you know what you're doing, go slowly & carefully. Hope this helps.

    Just got the templates, thank you Rhonda.
    Now...what blocks do i make with them???
    The template looks to be 2-1/2", and a smaller one, an inch
    Is there a special block to make with it?

    I design my own quilt blocks. the templates are so you can make my designs. You are welcome to use them anyway you like with any quilt block but if you want to make my designs - I usually use a 6 rows of 6 blocks per row. If you use the 2 1/2" to make my quilt blocks you will get a 12 1/2" size unfinished. the 1 1/2" makes a 6 1/2" quilt block.

    I teach my cut down method. That means you sew fabric swatches together and then cut out a square from the center. I have 8 diff "Blocks" that I teach you how to make. then you use the "blocks" to sew them into a quilt block.

    I also have the Scrap Club Quilt Along you can join if you like - I post a new quilt block every Sunday - but if you want to use the 4 rows of 4 blocks designs you need a 3 1/2" just let me know if you want one of those too.

    Directions for "Blocks"

    After you learn to make the "Blocks" you need then you choose a Quilt Block
    Then use the layout picture that is shown with the Quilt Block to see how to make your quilt block.

    Star Point and Wings blocks- use these in place of the original directions

    I make my own and I send them out to anyone who asks. i started sending them out when I wrote my Dresden Kaleidoscope ebook. I love making them. I have your address so I will send you one. Or I can send you the electronic file and you can print it off. they need to be clear plastic so you can trace the elements of the fabrics or you can mark and cut out the repeats.

    You can use them to make quilts / tablerunners/ wall hangings/ doll quilts/ I used them to make a tote and a mousepad in the ebook.

    Rhonda could you send me a template so I can order your e-file and try your dresden plates. They'd make beautiful hot pads, mug rugs, etc.. I have a regular dresden plate template but these look way different. Think you have my address but if not let me know. Will gladly pay you for it, just let me know. Thanks

    Thankyou, i have a stupid tablet, and i mean stupid. He wont let me get into email and i dont have a printer. Those dresdens are
    Spectactular. And all those books with the blocks you made are just fantastic. I could see a beginer making one of your blocks into a hugh block as a quilt. Soooo many ideas.

    are you wanting the PDF file with the template you can download or did you want me to mail you a template already cut out? Just want to make sure I have it right!

    I would also love the Dresden template and the 1 1/2 square template. I think you have my address. Thanks for being so generous.
