I've been having some fun with EQ7 again :-)
This is VERY picture heavy, so be patient
I woke up the other day and thought of a block looking like a sunset so I created this one
did an alternate pinwheel block
thought that was too much so did a plain grey as alternate
Then I filled the whole quilt with the block and tilted them and had them be opposite of each other, kind of cool look!
what about in grey and black, uhhh!
I played with the grey colors
Though I don't like orange, this was kind of fun
went back to my favorite color- blue!
now rotating the blocks again, is a totally different look
now how about this? kind of robotic looking. Don't you think?
then I went back and found a block where I changed just a little bit!
I changed the HOURGLASS block, instead of a 45 degree triangle I changed it from the top to the middle of the four patch part
An interesting look
looks better with black in the background
here it is again, maybe the triangle is smaller than the real block
a chain look in greens
if I made it scrappy it looks a lot different
now i changed the white "background" every other one to be black, a totally different look
This I named fan trick
Here I had the blocks face each other and added corner triangles
by changing the colors in rows, it created a fun look
and back to the original one just flipping every other block
Then I went back and colored them sort of like a monkey wrench block
here it's just two colors
how about a scrappy look??
Now a rail fence block with corner triangles, they look kind of round!
by rotating every other block, it looks totally different
another play with colors
adding some black and grey
tried more pastels and high lighted the FAN part of the blocks
Someone ( I think Alycia) had some quilt of valor quilts with this specific block, her and I emailed back and forth talking about EQ and this block, I found it was called a flying goose!
here they are facing each other
with a black background
this was one of her quilts
now just rotating the blocks, it's totally different
Now GO play with EQ- if you have it :-)
