If you enjoy piecing log cabin and Dresden plate blocks, you are in for a treat with this 4-part quiltalong! Use cheerful 1930s reproduction prints to make this beautiful bed-size quilt. Join quilting expert Nancy McNally in this Quilter's Skill Builders episode as she explores the vivacious elements that make up the three blocks and unique border. The Dresden plate design looks like needle-turned applique -- but is much easier!

In this episode, you'll learn how to:
  • Prep the background squares by marking the center.
  • Cut the 'logs' for the log cabin block by the width of the fabric.
  • Assemble log cabin centers and logs with a time- and fabric-saving method reminiscent of chain-piecing.
