Custom Machine Quilt A Dresden Plate Quilt With Natalia Bonner


Join Natalia Bonner in the studio she machine quilts this gorgeous Dresden Plate quilt. Natalia will be walking you through her entire process from start to finish - marking, planning, and both hand-guided and ruler quilting.

Natalia has chosen classic feathers and cross-hatching patterns for this quilt as it's a classic favorite. The bold shapes and curves make for some really fun quilting designs. Natalia has marked the background using a water-soluble marker so you can see the quilting lines clearly.

For the corners, Natalia will be using free-motion quilting with a feather pattern that follows the marked curves. Free-motion quilting takes some practice but it's so satisfying once you get the hang of it.
For the inner plates, Natalia will be using the 4-N-1 machine quilting ruler and a ruler foot attachment. Natalia will quilt straight lines on the pointed blades to create a secondary diamond effect. The ruler helps keep the lines straight and even.

Once Natalia has quilted the entire Dresden Plate pattern, she'll remove the markings using a baking soda and water mixture. Once the machine quilting is complete the quilt is now ready to be bound for a beautiful finished look.

I hope following along with my process has inspired you to try quilting some bold curves and shapes in your own quilting projects.
