EQ7 Tutorial Tuesday – Orange peel continued

beaquiltersEQ7tutorialtuesday
someone from the electric quilt user FB page asked for help designing this quilt that was a free design
bay-leaf-quilt-pattern
First, the quilting lines are “deceiving”, the blocks are ON point, not straight.
I didn’t find the block in EQ so create a new 9” block (or anything divisible by 3)
use the easy draw block
I had the grid ON and set the grid and snaps to 18
image
I drew the first petal 3” in and going 3” down
image
then copied and pasted those parts
image
Now with 3 petals in a row, I selected all of them by drawing a box around them with the pick tool and copying and pasting it again.
image
Then I selected BOTH of these and copied and turned them 90 degrees
image
and moved them into place
image
looking at the picture, each petal is a different 30s fabric, so I tried to color with those fabrics from the EQ library and added to sketchbook
image
then added to an on point quilt layout with 9” blocks
image
looking at the picture I think the sashing looks like 3” wide, so let’s add that
image
Now to get the star on the sashing you have to make a 3” x 9” block and add the triangles to the ends
image
image
Now add that to the layout
but flip one row as it inserts them all the same directions like this
image
here is the layout all done
