On Facebook this week, I saw that Deb Tucker's Studio 180 Design created a new tool -- the Wedge Star. After looking at the tool and the quilts designed using the tool, I fell in love with the simplicity of how the blocks are created combined with a complex look by coloring the blocks.
To take full advantage of the Wedge Star tool, I knew I needed to recreate these blocks in Electric Quilt so I could play with a fabric collection of my choice.
In this 7 minute tutorial you will be guided through drafting the two blocks in PolyDraw, importing the Art Gallery Matchmade fabric collection (included in Stash 2019 Download 01), and creating 3 on point quilts in the quilt worktable.
As an alternative to using the tool, you could also print out foundation patterns directly from Electric Quilt. Here are the blocks from the video.
Here are the quilts from the video.
I would love to see your designed Kaleidoscope Wedge quilts. Feel free to post on the Learning EQ Facebook group.
