So I decided to try string pieced circles. In part 1 of the Electric Quilt video tutorial I will share how I created a string pieced motif.
I am still working on a quilt to incorporate this block/motif -- which I hope to share with you next week.
What would you do with these circles?
If you send me a photo, I would be happy to share your ideas as well next week.
Upcoming Training Opportunities
- Easy Draw blocks
- Paper Piecing blocks
- Pieced PatchDraw tools (including hexagons, pentagons, LeMoyne stars plus variations, Dresdan plates)
I will also include layouts to complement each of the blocks!
You will be amazed at how much you can learn in this concentrated setting away from life's distractions.

To learn more about any of my classes (detailed below) or the show in general, check out the Minnesota Quilt Show website.
This mystery event will have you working through clues throughout the day as you guess the pattern that I have designed just for MN Quilters. There will be lots of clues throughout the event -- that will hopefully keep you guessing unti the end.
With Electric Quilt you can redraft these blocks. This class will focus on how to “read a block” and then come up with the most efficient way to draft it with Electric Quilt.
The blocks in this class are those that can be done in a “grid” format – basically just like drawing with a pencil and graph paper. Within Electric Quilt these blocks are drafted within Easy Draw.
Level: Advanced Beginner.
Three different layouts will be covered along with tips on auditioning your T Shirts in Electric Quilt. One of those layouts will incorporate using pieces and different size T Shirts (think Custom Set).
