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!
