How to make a flying geese wreath (block)
I'm going to show you how to make this cool flying geese in a wreath block like this one
first you have to be under BLOCKS, select BLOCK / new easy draw + patch draw
be on the "applique" tab at the bottom
now select the flying geese tool on the left and also notice the Contour and style at the top- leave those at the default right now, you can always play with those later
with the flying geese tool selected, draw a line, don't worry that it's wobbly, mine was!
When you let go of the mouse button THIS appears! cool :-)
Now you can go and while it's selected, click the different styles or contours and it will change what you drew already.
Toward the top, click the "convert to path" icon.
Nothing really changed, except the options on the top bar, now you see a WREATH button appear again.
(You may want to add to sketchbook now if you want to revert back)
with ALL the flying geese selected, click the WREATH button (if you de-selected the geese just "draw" a large square around it to select them all or hit CTRL+A)
Under the wreath maker you can pick how many clusters you want and spacing and size.
I picked 4
this is my result :-)
then I colored it and make it into a quilt
Link up with a wreath you've made in EQ7 from "scratch" - flying geese, hearts, circles, flowers etc.
