Quilt finished size 42" X 42". The large Dresden is sewn using 3 different size Dresdens which are then appliqued on top of each other, giving a 3 ring effect. Fabulous stash buster! The different sized Dresdens are cut from different places on Creative Grids new 22.5 degree triangle. The 4 corner hexagons are cut from scraps and sewn together in half hexagon units, then appliqued on. This is a quick quilt which gives a modern twist to a very traditional block.

Uses the Creative Grids CGREU3
Sew together 16 of these 22 1/2 degree triangles to create a complete circle; 8 to create a half-circle; or 4 to create a quarter-circle. Create Fans, Dresden Plates, etc. up to a finished size of 36 inches. Total ruler length is 18 1/2".

Use the vertical line to fussy cut stripes or cut half triangles (the 1/4 inch seam allowance is marked). Or use the angled lines to create intricate blocks as instructed in companion patterns. .

The ruler slides easily over the fabric until pressure is applied. Then, our exclusive gripper holds the fabric in place while cutting, eliminating slipping and miss-cuts!

The ruler comes with fully illustrated step by step instructions or scan the QR Code printed on the ruler to view a video demonstration.
