What are you most proud of? I was so pleased just finishing! So many frustrating fiddly bits, from drawing precise angles on my computer to turning the backing and batting neatly - I don't think I will be doing this again any time soon.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? There is no easy way to make a Dresden Plate block - whatever method you use will have difficult bits. Go slow, try not to throw anything sharp.

Please give measurements.

Each one is between 10" and 12" across. There are 12 wedges, so the corner angle of each wedge is 360/12=30 degrees. I drew the plain circle one, and just added points or half-circles onto that for the fancy designs. I pieced it with leftover scraps and strips from other quick-strip projects, so I have no precise yardage estimate, but each strip would be no more than 2.5" x 7".
