Taught by Kathy Doughty
Explore this classic quilting block that works equally well with traditional or contemporary fabrics. The blades and center of the block are made separately and then attached to the background fabric, so you can experiment with different fabrics and placements. Kathy walks through a range of different fabric combinations to show the different effects. She also shows how to work with a wedge ruler, as well as offering a download to create your own template – and finally, Kathy teaches you how to applique the Dresden Plate onto background fabric and build it into a quilt.
