    Sent you my e-mail Rhonda. If it will print out right I can have 1 made here at the lumber company. They'll usually cut it out when they have time if you buy the acrylic.

    Lynnie, you are my partner, there were just the 3 of us and I am partnering with both of you. I can't PM you with my address because your inbox is full. Did you subscribe to the scrap swap thread? That is helpful. I am ready to send as well, but the official date is March 1st. (I asked this too and exchanged PMs with Rhonda).

    I use thin plastic as you need to be able to trace the features of the fabric onto your template. then if you only have one template you have to erase the lines so you can go on to a different blade for each dresden k. I'm not sure how well acrylic would work for that. I like to just have a lot of the templates cut out and t hen I just use as many as I need and go back later to erase and reuse them.

    I use clear template plastic and I use a fine point marker to mark the elements of the fabric onto the template. Acrylic won't take a marker on it. I have used ink on an acrylic template but it isn't easily erased.

    I usually use a herringbone embroidery stitch done by hand, But I have also basted under the edges and topstitched them onto a background square.

    What is your favorite size to make the dresden's, in diameter? I love kaleidoscopes, and if I can make them pretty small , I might be able to do the hand stitching.

    first of all I'm a miniaturist so most of what I do for me is small. I like the 5" size. only 5 or 6 blades. but most people want a 12" quilt block so my regular size DK is 8".

    If I baste the edges down and topstitch them onto a background I like to baste the edges of each blade before I sew the blades together. it is so much easier to do them before rather than after. If you match your thread it won't show much if you topstitch. I just happen to like the look of the herringbone stitch. it kind of gives it a frame.

    Scrap block swap

    Just look at the gorgeous block I received from Goldendog55! I'm going to use it as the front panel of a tote bag I'm making for myself. Thank you so much.
