Online Interactive Workshop: Scrappy Dresden Block

The wonderful Sarah Payne joins us once again this Autumn with a class which we're sure you're all going to love! Join Sarah as she teaches her Scrappy Dresden Block workshop - work through that scrap-bin and make use of those leftovers to create a stunning design!...

Introduction by Sarah:-

Dresden Plate is a traditional pattern that is loved by many. This class will show you how you can take this traditional block and give it a modern twist. Using those scraps that we all accumulate in our sewing stash, we take this old-school design and have fun with it. This 24 inch block could be the basis for a large floor cushion, the centre piece of a quilt, or just one of many blocks in a much larger project.

  • Working with scraps; choosing your fabric pieces and using them in a cohesive design.
  • Adding variety to your blocks.
  • Creating the Dresden plate design with scraps
  • Basic applique.
