October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I created a quilt using EQ8 to honor those going through a battle with cancer. This ribbon quilt was inspired by a picture I saw on Pinterest and uses just one block from the EQ library and a simple layout.
Even if you are just getting started with EQ -- you can definitely recreate this quilt in EQ8.
If you would like to piece this quilt (using logs cut from 1-1/2" strips), I've created downloadable rotary cutting charts for each of the four block colorations included in the quilt.
Click on each image to access the color coded rotary cutting charts.
This block and the quilts would also be adaptable for logs cut from different size strips.
Here are the quilts presented in the video.
Alert: I have a fun border idea for next week.
Tech Know Quilters Hexagon Challenge
Last month we had quite a number of Tech Know Quilters in the Hexagon blocks and borders class. A number of them participated in a challenge to design their own hexagon blocks using PolyDraw.
Check out their wonderful designs.
Kathy Delaney noted "A friend of mine, Kelly Ashton, wrote a book called HEXAGONS, TRIANGLES, DIAMONDS AND MORE. Since I got to make a quilt for the book, I thought I would try to "design" some of the blocks I have sewn."
The following blocks and quilts weren't from the Hexagon challenge -- but represent some additional great work from Tech Know Quilters members.
You can learn more about Tech Know Quilters and sign up for the wait list here.
Some of the past Tech Know Quilter's classes without the added features of the membership, may also be purchased in my store. See available classes here.
