Since some of us will be focused on turkey this week, let's also think about creating a turkey block using Electric Quilt 8. This is a fun block that uses PolyDraw to complete the feathers along with some of the shape tools in applique. You will be amazed at how easy this block is to draft.
Do you have a Dresden ruler tool in your collection? If so, this would also be super easy to piece. Maybe I should try to piece him next week.
If you would like to piece him, click on the image below to download templates for a 12 inch block.
Feel free to share pictures of your turkey in the Learning EQ Facebook group. Here is a link to the post.
Tech Know Quilters Calendar Quilts
A variation of the Tommy the Turkey block was included in the Calendar Quilts class. Calendar Quilts will have you honing your drafting skills as you draw twelve 20" x 15" quilts - one for each month of the year. Plus there is even an option to create a monthly calendar. Combine the calendar quilt and the calendar for a perfect backdrop for your computer -- no quilting required.
The calendar quilt class is offered exclusively in Tech Know Quilters. Tech Know Quilters is a membership for Electric Quilt 8 users who are mastering their design and EQ8 skills. Sign up for the wait list to be informed on the next open enrollment period.
Current Tech Know Quilter members can let us know if they would like to swap their December class for one these options. Please note that this is a more advanced class.
