New Rulers and some blogs I like

I just wanted to share a couple of new rulers I got.  The only quilting ruler I have is  a long 6 inch by 24 inch and I need to expand my tools.
I have been wanting to get a dresden ruler for a while to make a dresden plate block.

I have a pinterest board full of ideas!   http://pinterest.com/missyshay/dresden-plate-quilts/  I am going to start a Dresden plate quilt after I finish my skirt so that I can use the scraps from my skirt.  My goal is to start it in May and hopefully have it done by September.
The great news is that I won a Dresden ruler/template!  Yeah!  I won it from the Barrister's Block here:   http://barristersblock.blogspot.com/  I really enjoy her blog and tutorials be sure to check it out!
The other ruler I got is a triangle shaped strip tubed ruler from The quilting Lodge.

I won it from Quilting by the River http://conniekresin.blogspot.com/  This is another blog that I have enjoyed following also.  I  can't wait to use it, she shares a couple of patterns on her blog on how to use it, so be sure to check her out!
Now I need a hexagon template/ruler to make hexagons, I want some hand sewing projects to carry while I'm traveling this spring..
I'll announce the winner to my giveaway tomorrow!

Can't wait to see what you do with your new rulers! I'm planning on making a Dresden plate too. Congrats!
