Harvest Stars EQ8 Tutorial
Learn to draft an easy asymmetrical block, color it with a All Hallows Eve, a fabric collection by Fig Tree Design that was produced by Moda. Then use Symmetry in Electric Quilt 8 to audition various rotations of the blocks.
I think this creates a great quilt to celebrate harvest time -- or Halloween.
Here is the block and quilts, I saved during the video tutorial.
Harvest Stars Block Construction using Folded Corners
I often receive questions on how I would approach piecing a particular block. For this block, the most efficient cutting chart is not the one produced by Electric Quilt.
Instead I would cut squares and rectangles as noted in the annotated diagram below.
FC is my abbreviation for Folded Corner. It is a square piece of fabric that is sewn onto another square or a rectangle.
If you haven't used folded corners, it is a very efficient want to work with patches with 45 degree angles. Here is how to construct a folded corner.
After adding the Folded Corners on the square and rectangular base units, combine units per diagram below.

Gees Bend Challenge
Tech Know Quilters in Modern Quilts class, were challenged to create a modern quilt inspired by the Gees Bend quilts. You can read more about Gees Bend quilts here.
Here are some additional designs that were shared in the Tech Know Quilter's private Facebook group.
I absolutely love viewing the creations by this incredibly talented group. Although enrollment to Tech Know Quilter's is current closed, click here to be put on a wait list. You will be the first to know when enrollment is open to new members.
