Back in 2015, I came across this image of a tulip antique quilt (circa 1900) on the internet. I suspect I saw it on either Pinterest or Ebay. At the time I drafted the quilt in Electric Quilt 7. However, I would actually draft it much differently today.
I will share the new and improved drafting of this quilt in today's video.
In the video, I will share:
Here are the blocks and quilt from the video.
Tech Know Quilters January Showcase
One thing I hear over and over again is -- I didn't know you could do "that" using Electric Quilt 8. One thing that holds us back from truly using Electric Quilt 8 is just not understanding that this versatile software can help you create any type of quilt. I think you will be inspired by the quilts created by Tech Know Quilter members using Electric Quilt 8.
Tech Know Quilters is a membership program focused on mastery of Electric Quilt 8. We have members at all stages of their Electric Quilt journey.

Julie Pedersen I took the 1 block quilts and we created a block using a picture and straight edge shapes. Then we took those shapes and changed to to multiple triangles. For the class, I did Reno, one of our cats. Then for this challenge, I did Mia, another of our cats. (I think I have a thing for cats' eyes.)
Zdenka Nemethova I also managed to finish this Valentine quilt - I drew it in EQ first. I put a heart block from EQ block library in the corners (paper-pieced). Only with the skills I gained during the Kari´s classes I was able to do it. Cannot imagine I could do this a year ago. Thank you, Kari
Edith Craig My class this month was Reproduction Quilts. I decided to adapt Painted Star with North Carolina Lily Baskets (ca. 1880) which is part of the North Carolina Quilts Project through the North Carolina Arts Council. I used various techniques that I have learned through this last year, including importing images, Easy Draw, and Applique, and set the resulting blocks into a quilt that closely resembles the historic one. It was quite a challenge, but I am pleased with the result. The photo of the historic one is included with my version.
Dorothee Ilgner An applique block plus the finished pillow using the design. Also check out the Dandy Lion! I love to play with words. Here is my furry gentleman.
Patricia Hansen Here is a foundation block I made after doing the loon in class. Plus the quilt I made from it. The original photo was taken in New Mexico in December while on a photo trip. These birds are quite large, but very graceful and beautiful fliers.
