Dresden Quilt Block of the Month Quilt



Let's start with a quote from Candy Grisham, the author of the book, Dresden Quilt Blocks Reimagined: "I love everything that is old that can be made new."

This book will be our guide as we explore color and pattern ideas to create a unique Dresden Plate quilt.  There are 25 plate design options and 4 edge patterns in this book.  Your quilt size, plate designs and layout are all designed by you.  The book has examples of traditional and non traditional quilts to show you what is possible.

This Block of the Month series will last for 8 months.  We ask you to bring your sewing machine to the first 2 classes so we learn several plate techniques.  Then we will meet monthly for 6 months to have "Show and Tell" and check everyone's progress, get new ideas and support when needed.  This is a great time for discussion and looking at options as our quilts are coming together.

The Dresden Plate is a very traditional design, now is your opportunity to make it your own.

Note:  Regarding fabric, don't worry about it, we will talk about color and and fabric patterns during the first 2 classes.
