14.  Susan Cleveland – Ringie Dingies
Skill Level:  Confident Beginner

Double points put a contemporary spin on this long-time favorite. They also eliminate the need for the traditional appliquéd circle in the center of each circle and allow rings to interlock! These Dresdens are built on a foundation so background fabrics don’t show through and, more importantly, Dresdens turn out perfectly flat. Learn Susan’s tips for speedily turning wedge points with the Prairie Pointer Tool. At home you may finish the quilt by quilting the background then ditch stitching Dresdens onto the quilted quilt! Design possibilities are endless!
$8.00 Required Pattern
