    I just love this and the tut is excellent. I have a block exchange for 12 1/2 " blocks. Trying to figure out the adjustments so this Dresden Dahlia would fit. Any suggestions?

    The insert for this one is an equalateral triangle so find a smaller Dresden Plate and see if a smaller equalateral triangle will work with it? The narrower the plate blades, the more over lap you will get so watch it doesn't get too bulky.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I plan to play with this today. I certainly should be able to find a Dresden Plate within all my books.

    Your tutorial is amazing. I wish you lived near me. I'm just starting out and have only finished two tops, and have yet to get them sandwiched and quilted. Seeing this post makes me want to get my current projects finished so I can try something like this. I loved the finished photo and you explained it so well.

    I notice in the picture that you topstitched the insert but cannot tell if you also topstitched the blade. Should we
    do both or just the insert. Again thank you so much for taking the time to do the tutorial it makes things so much
    clearer.

    I top stitched the inserts when I added the center. If I was using a full background square for the backing and center, I would top stitch the inserts and then use a machine buttonhole stitch to stitch the blades points to the background.

    Just finished a Dresden yesterday and was looking for inspiration this morning. What a beautiful square, I think this is my next project. Thanks for the tut.

    Thank you for the tutorial. I am thinking of red fabrics for Poinsettias.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.
