    Thank you!! This is the next block on my list to learn to create. I'm almost finished with the embroidery and framing of my Dresden Plate Basket.

    My husband cuts out lots of needed templates for me using a Dremel Tool (I know how to use, but likes to be the man) out of a sheet of plexiglass we bought at Home Depot. Then I use a Sharpie to mark the size or pattern on it.

    Really like your colors! I really like this block. It can be made into several sizes. I'm finding myself looking at a block, figuring out if I could PP it, then I draw out my own patterns, copy & print on really thin paper.

    This is a block I have been wanting to try, but don't like using cardboard templates. Your way saves me the headache of that part !! :-)

    I don't do card tricks with triangles, only with squares and rectangles; so much easier

    This looks so easy.............I hope I can make one as pretty as yours.

    I used a 3 1/2" template and the finished size is 9 1/2". If you want to make a 12 1/2" quilt block use a 4 1/2" template.

    Hope this tutorial helps make this block easier to make.

    Thanks for a great Tute! This is a block I've always avoided but I'm excited about giving it a try (now that I have your templates, too!)

    There's an even easier version by Eleanor Burns tha reduces it to a four-patch. Check out her Winning Hand pattern. That's how I did it. It was only my third quilt.
