My early Christmas gift to you is a free Mystery project. I will be sharing how to draft six newly designed foundation friendly blocks that would be suitable for a Christmas themed quilt. You will be the first to see these new designs.
The quilt will finish 17 x 11 -- suitable for framing and small enough to finish in time for Christmas this year. I am hoping to make two of them. With EQ there are plenty of options to make a larger quilter -- so don't feel constrained by my quilt size.
This free challenge is designed for both beginners to Electric Quilt 8 and those that would like to expand their bock drawing skills to a whole new level. My goal is to encourage you to spend a small amount of time using Electric Quilt each day to allow you to become much more comfortable with the software.
Although the mystery is FREE, you must sign up to receive the video tutorials. The mystery will start on Monday, December 7th.
You can read more about the mystery here.
Videos to Set Yourself Up for Success during the Upcoming Mystery
The getting started videos are available to all -- regardless of whether you choose to join the mystery.
I've put together three short videos to give you a head start for the mystery:
Video 1: Setting Up Your Project File and Adding Fabrics
In this tutorial, I will share with you how to set up your project for the Foundation Friendly Christmas Mystery. You will also learn how to add fabrics from the library and select a fabric collection from the Moda website and import it into Electric Quilt.
Option 1: Rustic Christmas
Option 2: Marches de Noel
Video 2: Import a Picture for Tracing Plus Practice Snowflake Block
Video 3: Exporting an EQ Block Image to Facebook
When exporting a block you wish to share on Social Media, the process can be different than sharing a quilt. In this tutorial, learn how to export an image of a block and then add it to a Facebook post.
Here is the link the the Learning EQ Facebook post that is referenced in the videos.
If you haven't enrolled in the challenge, now is the time. I look forward to working with you to become more comfortable in drafting your own foundation friendly blocks. The first block will be sent out December 7th (that is Monday) at 8 am.
I've been asked by those that are in one of my classes or receive my weekly newsletter if they are automatically enrolled in the challenge. The answer is NO. So please sign up using the link if you would like to participate in the challenge.
