Includes Dresden Plate Template Ruler and Fabric

Instructor: Michelle Henderson, Seams Like Quilting

Dresden Plate blocks were first known to be used in the late 1800’s – a stunning technique to create large shapes from many small pieces of fabric. Dresden Plates are traditionally made up of individual petals (rounded) or blades (pointed), organized in a circle. Once you learn the techniques used to make a Dresden Plate block, the possibilities are endless!

Join us Feb. 24, 9-12 to learn this foundational block by making a striking snow-themed block (or mini quilt!). All fabric and specialty notions, including a special Dresden Plate ruler, are included. Please bring your sewing machine and basic supplies. Shared irons and ironing boards will be available. Class limit: 6

What is a Skill Building Class?

At Seams Like Quilting, we want your only limit to be your imagination!

As a set of skills, quilting is much like cooking. We can work from a recipe (pattern) and often do. But once in a while, dinner just needs to get on the table. So we rely on foundational skills, dig around in the pantry, and bring something together. Knowing how to cook is about more than following a recipe. And knowing how to quilt is the same. Often, we avoid patterns we like because they use techniques we’re uncomfortable with. Our skill building class series is about introducing those techniques. We never know what our next favorite skill will be!!

Skills Used/Learned in this class:
Calculating and cutting Dresden pieces
Machine piecing
Machine applique
Hand turned applique

We welcome you to our classes! Classes run with a minimum of 3 people and a maximum of 6. Bring your machine, rotary cutter, mat, and basic notions to class. No refunds are given unless is cancelled by the shop. Communication of class status will be via email.

*All fabric cut from bolt priced and sold in quarter yard increments. For 1 yard, please set quantity at 4.
