Last week you saw the post about my recent KITE quilt in Quiltmaker
So I figured I’d show how I designed it in EQ7
The block is actually called hummingbird in EQ
and since I had the 4” kite die, I made the block 8” and did a 4x5 layout
I then added it and started playing with colors
since it was part of RSC16 and there’s 20 blocks here, I knew each color should be used twice with 10 colors total.
now instead of deleting this border and starting over, I inserted a border
and since the kite block is really 4” I added BLOCKS for this inner border and chose 8 x 10
and then colored the border pieces randomly to match the kites on the quilt
This time around I also added a 1/2” border on the outside, it’s not a border however, it was just for me visually seeing what a scrappy binding would look like!
and it’s easy to add by being on border #1 and clicking CLONE and then adding a new border and just adjusting the width
Here’s more kite quilts I’ve designed in EQ
and one with sashing
kite quilts are fun! and with the GO die, it’s SEW easy!
