Here are the EasyDraw blocks you will need for a "beach" quilt. All of them have a finished size of 3" x 5".
Fabric for the Beach Quilt
Each month, Electric Quilt produces a new free fabric collection that we can download and use in our Electric Quilt projects. The August 2022 collection is Island Vibes II. It was designed by Linda Hahn for Banyan Batiks. Just click on the picture and follow the instructions to download this collection to your computer and load it into EQ8.
Once the fabric collection is in your Electric Quilt library, add it to your Block Alphabet project (the project you set up last week).
Of course these quilts would also work for a name -- maybe for a child or grandchild. Here is the same quilt I did with my name.
I am looking forward to see what quilt you end up designing -- and what fabric you use for your quilt. Feel free to post a picture in the Learning EQ Facebook group.
On a personal note, I am looking forward to retreating with my local quilting group at the end of next week. It is so fun to be able to get away with friends as we work on our quilts. I just cut out a quilt to work on at the retreat. It only has a zillion half square triangles in it -- so we will see how much I get done.
I hope you find some quilting time this week as well.
