This week’s tutorial is both about a tool you may not have used much and also featuring a special block
The New York Beauty block!
If you search under blocks for “new york” you’ll get these 5.
Add them to sketchbook and edit #1
Now if you wanted to maybe add some more “stuff” to the outer ring, click the outer ring line with the SHAPE tool and RIGHT click and click EDIT
You’ll see the edit arc box
the HALF AND THIRDS will add points at the half way point or thirds, or you can click half numerous times and it add half and half of that and half of that etc.
If you click partition and leave it at 5, it breaks it into 5 sections, so 4 points and the beginning and ending lines
stagger, will move it in half a width and then add 5 points
I like the 5 partition
Then draw some lines from the points of the triangles to these points.
You can also play with the inner line
Let’s color it and see what it would look like.
I used stonehenge from the 03-2014 fabric download on EQ’s website
Let’s see what it will look like in a quilt
here I made the layout 4 x 4 and changed the colors around on every other block
and with a border and NO block outlines
Have you tried the ARC edit tool or even made a NY beauty quilt or just designed one in EQ?
