Some evenings I just like to play. Draft a simple block and then see what it will look like in various arrangements. In the Learning Electric Quilt Facebook group , I presented a quilt I created and asked them to identify the one block in this quilt. Yes this is a one block quilt!
See how to create both the block and the quilt in this weeks video tutorial. The entire video can be viewed in 5 minutes. :)
Would you like another quilt using the same setting? This one uses the August fabric of the month free collection from Electric Quilt (Washington Depot) and the block Leap Frog from the EQ Library.
Back to School
Are you ready to get back to working on you own quilt education? Check out these Electric Quilt options designed for you.
Introduction to Electric Quilt
Learn the basics of the program. These classes are live (via the internet) and are limited to 8 participants. This allows participants to ask questions while I am demonstrating and even share their screen to allow me to see their work and personally advise them. Also participants receive videos of the class sessions plus detailed handouts supporting material covered during the classes. Learn more.
Pieced Patch Draw
The blocks in this live interactive class will be those based on special grids – including those based on circles, octagons, Kaleidoscopes, eight pointed stars and hexagons. Layout options will also be provided for many of these blocks. Level: Intermediate.
Easy Peasy Easy Draw - Learn Easy Draw in 10 Minutes a Day
Would you like to draft your own quilt blocks? This class will focus on how to “read a block” and then come up with the most efficient way to draft it with Electric Quilt. The blocks in this class are those that can be done in a “grid” format – basically just like drawing with a pencil and graph paper. Within Electric Quilt these blocks are drafted within Easy Draw.
30 separate video lessons will be e-mailed to you over six weeks (one lesson a day, Monday-Friday). Learn more here.

In talking to people in my classes and online, one thing I hear is "I haven't really learned how to use my EQ software". Or a variation on the theme -- "I haven't used my software in (insert number) of months (or even years)". or -- "I've tried the software, but it wasn't intuitive".
Join the over 2000 people who accepted and completed this challenge, allowing them to fall in love with the program. 14 separate videos will be emailed to you over two weeks.
