Many of you participated in a webinar shortly after Christmas, where I shared how to create applique snowflakes. This used a process similar to how we cut paper snowflakes as a child. It was a great opportunity to become acquainted with some of the tools within the applique worktable in EQ8.
However I know that not everyone is into applique. So I decided to challenge myself to take one of those starting snowflake sections and turn it into a foundation piecing friendly block. We will use a similar process in that we will start by creating a foundation friendly wedge and then use clone and rotate to create and place the other wedges.
This process is slightly more complex than the applique as cloning and rotating large segments have a few challenges in EasyDraw.
True confession. My first attempt at this technique was pretty seamless. However, once I started recording, I experienced a couple of issues.
Here is my proposed sectioning for the two sections for each wedge
