EQ7 Tutorial Tuesday–Isosceles quilt part2

beaquiltersEQ7tutorialtuesday

 

Last time (2 weeks ago) I created a tutorial for the Accuquilt Isosceles Go! die.

I noted about the straight up layout that there SHOULD be a way to line up the rows and have the triangles be facing each other instead of this.

image

well I was right! it’s all about the BORDERS!

So again use the one patch layout and select LIGHTNING and make the triangles 5 x 6 then only have 1 vertical row!

image

Now comes the border part.

Add a border, but uncheck “All” in the middle and also the L+R and T+B

and only add a row to the bottom that’s 6” and

select the style to be POINTS OUT and choose 8 horizontal (vertical doesn’t matter)

image

Then you get this!

image

Now add borders to the TOP and BOTTOM, again 6” and choose POINTS IN and 8 blocks again.

image

image

Do another T+B row like this and select POINTS OUT

image

Now you can go back to the previous row (row 3)

and select CLONE selected row and click ADD

image

image

Now you can make the quilt as big as you want by going back one row and cloning it

image

here’s one colored

(I selected a color and held down ALT and clicked on a spot on one row and the spot just above or below it on another row)

image

and with a white background

image

or another colorful version

image

Now if you want to make it wider, you do have to go back and add a block to each row, but it’s no big deal Smile
