Block of the Month Project: Block #12

I've been neglecting my Block of the Month updates, but that doesn't mean that Amanda, Caitie, and I fell off the BOM wagon.  We've been stitching away the last couple of months, so this is just one of a number of blocks I have to share with you.  So let's start with the first block for July, the Traditional Dresden Plate.

Block of the Month: Block 12

I've seen Dresden Plates all over the quilt blogs, and almost a year ago I even remember stumbling upon this great tutorial, Dresdens Decoded, from our very own Craftsy Block of the Month teacher, Amy Gibson at http://www.stitcherydickorydock.com/.  Amy pulled that rabbit right back out of her hat for this block in the series.  As you can see, Amanda, Caitie, and I all stuck to the original design by making a scrappy Dresden on a neutral background with a neutral center.  No, your eyes do not deceive you -- my Dresden is slightly smaller than the others.  It turns out just the teensiest variation in the size of the blades makes a world of difference in the finished size of the "plate."  I kind of like the variation, and now we have 3 gorgeous Dresden Plates to add to our stacks 'o blocks.

Check out our other blocks in the Craftsy Block of the Month series:
