Tutorial Tuesday- Easter Table Runner

beaquiltersEQ7tutorialtuesday
Since it’s a few days before Easter, I wanted to create a fun little Easter table runner in EQ.
Easter daffodils
First start a new file and name it Easter, then do the layout 1 x 1 blocks and have the block be 9” tall by 12” wide
Don’t worry about the borders just yet.

On layer 2 you may not have SET applique TEXT, but click the little arrow at the button of the right buttons to add buttons and you’ll find it there
image
then click on the applique text tool and select your font, a bold font is best
image
I centered the text and wrote Happy Easter
image
Then click the border tab and change the borders to JUST 9” on the left and right and 0 on the top and bottom
image
Now find a daffodil block under Libraries/block library, then under 03 foundation pieced and flowers
image
Add these to the side blocks
image
Now use the flip block button the right bar and flip the right block
image
I also colored in the background behind the letters with the same green and the daffodil blocks
image
Then add a 1” border and 3” border all the way around and use the SET BORDER button on the right
image
I liked this checked corner one, as it will multiply by 3” well
image
Then I colored it to match the blocks
image
and if you use the random recolor tool and match to fabrics, you can see it with ONE click
image
and VOILA!
image
If you export the image and uncheck the outline blocks and patches
image
you’ll get this!
