It’s day 1 of the Blog hop and I am going to show you how I created my little leaf guy for the button, he’s super simple!
First in EQ7search for a “LEAF” block
this one is called sycamore leaf.
add to sketchbook
It’s now under MOTIFs in the sketchbook
Click the EDIT button at the bottom of this box.
Select the leaf in the applique tab
Now click the FLIP button at the top.
Now draw a circle
Select it and copy/paste it or click the CLONE tool at the top
Move the second eye into place
do the same with the iris
Now draw a triangle
If you hold down CTRL it will only turn in certain increments and be easier to get straight
Move into place.
Now Select ALL ( CTRL+A)
and copy it.
Click BLOCK>New Block> Easy draw+PatchDraw
Under the applique tab, PASTE your leaf guy
I shorted the top stem part a bit
You can also add eyebrows, by drawing a rectangle, rotating it, then clone and mirror image it.
Under the color tab, you can color it and add to sketchbook
I kind of like the plan guy instead, this guy looks so sad
Now you can also MERGE the blocks.
First add some FRAME type blocks to the sketchbook
When working on blocks, click
You can then play around with all the blocks you have in the sketchbook.
Don’t forget to add the new ones to the sketchbook too.
A fun quilt layout, though that’s a LOT of leaf appliqued blocks
Or how about this one.
Same blocks, just an ON point layout instead
And with some fall fabrics
Have fun with the other HOPPER today and the rest of the week
And don’t forget to COMMENT!
