Tech Know Quilters Update
I have been crazy trying to catch up after market. I've been finishing up my videos for my new Tech Know Quilter Club program. This Electric Quilt club program is now ready to be released to brick and mortar quilt shops across the country.
Here are the quilts included in this program.
If you know of a shop that may be interested in the program (or maybe you may interested in leading a club) -- let me know. I would be happy to send out more specifics on the program to shops and potential club leaders.
About a month ago(pre-market), I mentioned on a Facebook group that I have been having fun playing with drafting Hexagon blocks in Patch Draw. I had done a series of hexagon blocks from a well-known book and was hoping to share one of them here -- but the author was concerned about copyright.
Linda Frantz jumped into the conversation and graciously offered me permission to use any of her 300 hexagon blocks to demonstrate my technique. Linda Frantz is the owner/designer behind Inklingo. Inklingo are shapes that can be printed on fabric or on paper. They are extremely popular for hand piecing and English paper piecing. (I have personally use the Shape #2 Collection for Flying Geese, Half Square and Quarter Square triangles -- which I did by machine since I don't have the patience for hand piecing.)
This morning I decided to take an hour and play. Wow! I absolutely love Linida's blocks. And they are very friendly to draft in PatchDraw within Electric Quilt.
Here is my first rosette using four of her blocks.
This week's Electric Quilt video tutorial will share how I drafted one of the blocks from her 300 hexagon block book. Click here to access the Inklingo page with the complete video of all Linda's hexagon blocks. The website also has links to her shapes collections to purchase and download the shapes for piecing all of her 300 hexagon blocks.
Here is one of Linda's block redrafted by me in Electric Quilt followed by my Electric Quilt video tutorial.
These blocks are very addicting. I may need to draft all 300 of them.
