One of my favorite uses of Electric Quilt is to draft a block in EQ using the technique I plan to use to piece the block and then create my own quilt layout for the block.
The video tutorial this week was inspired by the Studio 180 Design Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star tool along with the Starburst Technique Sheet.
I loved how easy it is to piece this block using Deb Tucker's over-sized piecing/trim down techniques. No need for foundation patterns, templates or set-in seams. My kind of block!
In this video I will cover drafting the block using PolyDraw, using Serendipity to frame the block for a fun complementary design and creating a quilt using an On Point setting.
Here are the blocks and quilts from the video.
Tech Know Quilters Specialty Rulers and Dies Class
There are a lot of tools on the market that can make cutting and piecing our quilts so much easier. However when it comes to designing we need to develop our skill set to understand the best options for creating blocks and quilts that can utilize these tools. Even if you don’t use the tools discussed in this class, you will learn that the techniques transfer to most quilting rulers and dies. This class has a lot of fun bonuses built into the lessons that you are not going to want to miss.
There are sessions on Studio 180 Design tools, Hex N More, Wedge Rulers and Accuquilt Dies along with working with Electronic Cutting Systems like Silhouette, Cricut and Brother Scan N Cut.
Here are just some of the projects you will learn to create in the class.
If you are a Tech Know Quilter member, you are welcome to select this as one of your monthly classes (or even add it on to your planned class). Just send us a note if you would like to do either of these options in September. Note that it is a more advanced class.
