    Default Anyone make a dresden block that fits on a 10" square?

    Hi - I'd like to make the dresden block and I'd like it to fit on a 10" square. Does anyone have measurements on how big to cut the dresden blades so that it'll fit? In one of Jenny's tutorials, she uses the 5" charms and they fit on a 14" square. Do you think 4" will work? I'm trying to avoid cutting 20 blades to see how big they should be. Any help is appreciated.

    I found this and according to it your plates should be 3" for the 10" square.

    Take a 10" square piece of fabric for your background and fold it in 4ths and crease the folds. Cut a few dresden blades and lay them on the square to see how they will fit. Remember you need some room around the outside of the dresdens for seams and a little for background.

    Perfect, exactly what I needed. 3" though, i might need to rethink the block size! thank you

    When in doubt, you can always cut some from paper to experiment.

    I’m sure you can search the Internet for
    a pattern that will fit a 10 inch block.
