EQ7 Tutorial Tuesday – Grid tool

beaquiltersEQ7tutorialtuesday

Today’s tutorial is going to highlight the GRID tool.

It’s a handy tool but I think often neglected.

When you work on a block it’s on the left side at the bottom of the row.

Start off with a 9 x 9 block and no graph paper.

click the little red square on the grid cool and enter 3 x 3 on the grid setup box.

Then from the top left corner of the block, click and drag down to the bottom right to draw out the grid.

Now easily you can change the grid setup to 2 x 2 and draw more grids inside this nine patch

color it and add to sketchbook

You can easily go back and change the block or add more fun things.

So try out the GRID tool and have fun!

Thank you, I didn't even know that grid tool existed. I could have save me lots of "drawing" time.
