1. [Ignore this instruction if you have come here from the chubby dresden tutorial as your outer circle section is in one piece. Go straight to instruction 2.] Sew together the four outer circle pieces to make a square with a circle in the middle. Place the square right side down and press the seams anticlockwise.
7. Set your sewing machine to slow-medium (if you have a speed control) and to "needle down" if you have that option. Start halfway between two seams. Lower your needle into the fabric and then jiggle the fabrics so that the top and bottom are lined up to the 1/4" line just until the next seam. Sew to the next seam, removing the pin before or as you sew. Leave the needle down in the seam.
8. Raise the presser foot and jiggle the fabrics so they are lined up for the next dresden section until the next seam ensuring also that there are no puckers underneath. Sew to the next seam. Repeat until the whole dresden outer circle is sewn.
TOP TIP: As with the inner circle, try to "ease" your fabrics as you go if you start to find you have a fabric build up on top. If you ignore this problem as you go round, you will end up with a big bump of outer circle fabric at the end and have to do some major unpicking.
9. Place the dresden right side down and gently press the seams out towards the edge of the block.
10. Flip the block right side up, pump the iron up to hot, switch on the steam blaster and iron (I iron, I don't press) the block starting at the centre and ironing out to the edge of the block.
