Chequered Dresden Plate

Last month Dot introduced the chequered Dresden plate, she will demonstrate assembling it this month.

It looks fun and hopefully lots of you will try it.

To prepare you need to sew together 4 x 2½” strips. If you are using 20 different strips each strip needs to be about 13” long. You will need 5 sets of 4 strips to make the plate.


Bring your joined strips along and you can use our rulers to cut your pieces of the plate.

Dot will show you how to finish the plate
