A year of red and white Quilt Challenge




I was looking at SewCalGal’s blog and realized I never made a quilt to link up for March, so of course I had to play in EQ7 and I played with Quilt layouts which are a ton of fun!

I just used “simple” blocks and inserted into the quilt layouts.

1 First I tried red and white and dark red

2 Same layout but different block and just red and white

Which one do you like?

And I didn’t read if I HAVE to make a quilt from one of these for the next phase? or do whatever I want?

I DO want to make one of these, I’m thinking FPP because those angles would be too tricky to get perfect and I’m also thinking smaller than 30” total, we’ll see.

Love your designs!

Ohhhh, pretty! Love them all, but that first one really speaks to me. I really need to learn to use that EQ program. I dont' think I have even opened it up after I loaded it.
Bad me! LOL!

What fun. I like 9 and 10.

My favorite is the last one--so cool! If I read correctly, you don't have to make the same quilt as your designed one. I finally found my EQ5 disc and now have everything updated to EQ7 on my new laptop. Now to find time to play!

I love them all but I think my favorites are the two 4 patches, especially the second one.

Nancy said...

These are great. I really want to know how you did #8 because I see units sewn into the quilt that are squares, diamonds, triangles. This intrigues me.

Michele said...

I can't decide which one I like the best.

Connie said...

Beautiful quilts Bea and FPP would definitely be the way to go on some of them!
