WARNING When the fabric arrived, I found that the size stated on the Northcott site was incorrect. The width of the actual panel was over 27". Not the 24" as stated on their website. From tip to tip the center flower measured 22-1/4". The individual blocks measured around 7-1/8" inches. So it is necessary to resize the panel image in Electric Quilt before using it in blocks or a quilt.
Within EQ there are two different options for working with panels. One is to treat them as a block and the other is to treat them as fabric. If the image is saved as fabric, it can be used to color a block -- or even color patches within a block. In this tutorial we will be treating the panel as fabric.
In the video, I include information on importing fabric from multiple sites, resizing the panel and creating the quilt.
Here is the quilt from the video. For those that are wondering, I would applique the finished PolyDraw block (with the hearts) on top of the four center blocks. Other than that block this would be super simple to piece -- a true quilt in an hour (minus the quilting of course).
Since I purchased the panels, I have decided to give one away. Create your own quilt that includes at least part of the panel and post in the Learning EQ Facebook group -- before Thursday March 23, 2023 at midnight. I will randomly select from quilts posted to the designated post on Friday and let you know the winner next week.
