Modern Dresden Workshop Day 1 – Gems of the Prairie

June 3, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm EDT

A modern update for making a variety of Dresden plate designs using a single template.  The class will cover 5 different variations of edge finishes.  Size and design variations are endless.  You will learn to sew the plates by machine and mix and match your edge finishes if desired.  Designed to be a technique class letting you determine how many plates, what sizes and finishes and layout you desire. 

Take the Dresden design one step further.  Start with a background for a wall hanging.  Create multiple Dresden plates of your own liking, mixing edge treatments and pieced units to create a unique wall hanging. 

Confident beginner, book recommended, template required.

Gems of the Prairie Quilt Guild
Laurie Schierer Fri, Jan 15, 12:37 PM to me Hi Candy. I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Laurie Schierer and I am the new Program Chair for the Gems of the Prairie Quilt Guild. Laurie Baker forwarded me your contract for the June Program and classes. We are in a precarious position, as the church we use for our meetings and classes has not opened since the pandemic started. So right now, we couldn't hold our meeting, even if we were ready. We are aware, with the vaccine, everything might change very quickly in the coming months. I just wanted to talk to you about your zoom capabilities and the possibilities for this program. I have listed my contact information below if you would rather discuss the options by phone or facetime. Our members are really looking forward to your programs, so I will look forward to hearing your thoughts... Laurie Laurie Schierer 309.357.9601
