If you are planning on doing our retreat quilt, we have included the yardage and cutting instructions. Of course you will need the templates that are in the pattern for your dresden pieces. We are in the process of getting plastic templates made and will have them available at the retreat or we will let you know if they are available before. These are not hard to cut out so you can wait until the retreat.
