In an Electric Quilt facebook group, Rita L. posted a photo of a block from this quilt. This quilt was handed down through her husband's family and she wanted to create a copy of the quilt.
Although she didn't use Electric Quilt, she knew the key to piecing this quilt was a decent "quilt pattern". Of course we all know that this is something that Electric Quilt does well.
My original thoughts when looking at this was that it needed to be created in the applique section of the program. However upon further review, I realized that this could be done in Easy Draw. And an even greater plus is that with a few adaptions it could be paper pieced.
See how I tackled drafting this block in Easy Draw in this weeks video tutorial.
If you would like to trace my block, feel free to copy this picture to My EQ7>Images. You may then insert it in the Images tab and trace the image in the Easy Draw tab.
Next week I will share tips for creating the setting for this block in Electric Quilt.
