EQ7 Tutorial Tuesday- circles

beaquiltersEQ7tutorialtuesday
I just got more circle dies from Accuquilt and have some ideas already and wanted to show how to play with circles in EQ!
When you start a quilt, start with a custom set
image
quilt/ new quilt/ custom set and then set the size
I chose a square 40” x 40”
Then I created a block and also made that 40” x 40”
(easy draw + patch draw)
image
on the applique tab, there’s different shapes on the left side
image
on the heart, click the little arrow to open it up and the first option is a circle/ oval
image
then draw a circle
image
near the top you can then enter a a size you want it to be, I chose 8”
image
you can also click the center button to make it centered on the block
image
then copy and paste the circle and adjust to whatever size you want again, I chose 5”
image
something fun is the wreath button (I think that’s only in EQ7)
image
with the circle selected, click the wreath button
you can then select the amount of the cluster and placing and distance
image
then click OK and VOILA!
image
you can then copy and paste more circles and change the size and play more in the wreath maker and once you’re happy with it, add to sketchbook and put the block into the quilt
I came up with this
image
or something random like this?

Hope you like circles and play in EQ with them!
