I wanted to show this sampler quilt I created in EQ a while ago.
I’ve always been fascinated with quilt designs that are outside the box and just different.
Here I’m just showing traditional blocks, but you’ll get the idea for creating your own, any way you want.
Start by doing a new quilt CUSTOM SET
48 x 48 is easy to calculate with.
Click on these 3 buttons at the top
snap block position to grid
snap block size to grid
Now pick a bunch of fun blocks from the block library
On the layout, hold down SHIFT while starting at a corner and dragging a square down over the grid
if you don’t get it perfectly square, you can select it and change the size
You can also choose to work from the center and out
making sure you have the block selected and click the center tools
Keep adding blocks and moving the around or copy and paste
Around the center block I want some flying geese
I found a 4x geese block
and entered it into the quilt design
I copied and pasted it several times and also turned the blocks
how about something simple next to that?
I created a simple block like this
and added it next to the geese
I decided to fill it up with more geese and these simple blocks
Here I colored it with fabrics downloadable from EQ’s site from March called Stonehenge kids
