In Craftsy's first-ever Block of the Month, Amy Gibson brings you 10 specific quilting techniques - appliqué, string quilting, paper piecing and more.
What materials did you use?
Quilting fabric and regular sewing supplies.
I am a beginner in quilting. I have not started yet because my schedule just hasn't allowed me too. But after the first of the year I am hoping to get started. I would like to make a dresden plate quilt top. Do you think this is too difficult for a beginner? Thank-You
Oh yes, Sign up for the Craftsy Block of the Month class. It is a free online class and you can access it anytime you want to. The Dresden block was one of the blocks taught. The instructor is great too.
I meant No, the block isn't too difficult.
Hello mommababe, a word of caution--Don't try to use the template for the modern dresden in the course materials as it is inaccurate. I would buy an EZ dresden ruler and save yourself a lot of grief. I don't think Craftsy has fixed that template for people yet.
I like your brown dresden plate.
Tanks, me too. I had tons of brown and cream and beige fabrics in my stash, so the majority of my blocks are in those color families, with some brighter colors thrown in to liven the blocks up a bit. I'm planning on making a king-size quilt.
Umm, that would be "Thanks". :-)
