A traditional block that can be made in different sizes to create different looks.

Using all the same fabrics to a real variety of fabrics can alter this look.

Each ‘plate ‘ is pieced in strips that then create a circle. By using different lengths and finishing the ends with points, curves or squares all can be individual to you.

The block can be a full circle or it could be a half circle or even just a quarter circle. 

Hand sewn or on the machine is up to you.

You'll be shown many variations for using this block.


It's a great way to use up strips and left over jelly rolls. Please also bring about 1/2 metre of background fabric for your plates.


Dresden Plate Block Class with Tracy Aplin October 8th 2021 10am - 4pm

  • You will receive an email when you book that says 'links to download your digital products'  Don't panic.  This is just a PDF for you with the course details, materials needed and a bit more information relevant to the course.  You will not need to do anything else but if you have any questions just drop me an email.

  • Please be aware that class fees are non-refundable.  However, if we need to cancel the class for any reason you will, of course, receive a full refund.  The rare exception would be if you give us plenty of notice and we are able to find a replacement student for your space. (That's the beauty of the waiting list)
