Susan Cleveland is back for her 4th appearance on The Quilt Show. She has taken the Dresden Plate block to a whole new level with fussy cutting, arches, piecing, and interlocking parts. Using her Dynamic Dresden Ruler she gives you ideas for new ways to create these fun and interesting blocks. You'll also get a peek at her latest book which has 7 projects from which to choose.
Susan also gives you tips for stitching in the ditch and finishing the edges of your quilts.
Susan shares tips with Alex for utilizing a variety of fabric designs when selecting your Dresden look.
Susan and Ricky talk about designing your own dresden and the many decisions one goes through in the process. She follows this by discussing the foundation process needed for the block and finishes with tips for how to quilt in the ditch.
We end the show with Susan, Alex and Ricky having a Q & A sesssion with the audience where they field questions on, among other things, what Susan uses as the fabric foundation for the Dresden block. Then a field piece about Cherrywood Fabrics and their annual challenge is featured, where the 2018 challenge theme was the musician Prince.
