Most copies have been updated but some of the first patterns indicate that you will need a 1/2 yard of fabric for the background. This will work but you would have to piece it to make it 24.5" square. If you don't want to piece your background start with 2/3 yard of fabric.
**I recommend the EZ Quilting Dresden Plate which has a maximum height of 8”. Other DRESDEN rulers will also work but if there wedge is longer than 8” you will either trim your wedges to 8” OR make your background larger to fit the longer wedges.
Before you start any of my patterns please check here to see if there are any updates to the patterns. I do my best to make sure they're correct when they're published but unfortunately no one is perfect.
