This really is a one patch Dresden quilt! Any long Dresden ruler will work here, but I don't like patterns that surprise you with special requirements, so I went ahead and make a Dresden template for this one. You can tape it on your regular ruler to turn it into a Dresden Ruler.
Special Thanks also to @katisquilting and Michaela
for helping us find a cool name for our new pattern :)

Our cover model has round corners because, you know, Dresden blocks are traditionally round HA:)
It wasn't hard, just use a kitchen bowl for a template to round quilt corners before binding.
Then I used lots of binding clips/barrettes to ease binding on the curve.

I've saved this fabric set for ages, waiting for the perfect project, and I'm so glad I did. There was just enough to make a throw sized model with scrappy binding. I saved dark teal for the corners by cutting 4 equal binding strips, about 9", and pinning the center of the strip to the center of each corner. Then when a corner came around in binding, I cut the binding and added in the corner piece.

I hope you will try our Dresden Steps and let me know what you think.
It is a super quick pattern because you hardly have to press or square-up.
And, oh yeah, pattern includes 3 sizes: baby, throw, queen
