August 15, 2017 - Sonora Fairgrounds Creekside Room
Split Blade Dresden Workshop
Teacher Anelie Belden
This class will teach students the new Modern way to Piece a Dresden Plate Block
using Anelie's piecing method of Stitch-n-Flip. This Technique gives quilters a choice
to Appliqué or not and removes the difficulty of getting the Dresden to lay down
flat. In addition, the designs made in class will incorporate the "Split Blade" design.
Students will be surprised as to how easy the cutting and piecing technique is. Split
Blades are one of the most popular designs from my Patterns and Book "Thoroughly
Modern Dresden." Students will also learn several Border techniques which includes
Putting Borders on without measuring, Pieced Dresden Border, and "Peaked Top Dresden
Students will have a variety of design options to choose from. Each student receives
a pattern for the design they are doing in class.
