Magic Cross Quilt
Blocks become much more appealing when you work with your favorite fabrics. Before piecing the blocks, bring them into Electric Quilt 8 so you can audition the blocks with a fabric collection. Pick a collection from either a favorite manufacturer or a collection of your personal fabrics.
The video will not only show you how to include a block from BlockBase+ in an Electric Quilt 8 project, but will also show you how to design a quilt starring the Magic Cross block.
The fabrics used in the Magic Cross quilt were from the April 2021 Free Fabric Collection -- Decostitch Elements by AGF Studio.
If you are having problems accessing your purchased BlockBase+ blocks in EQ8, make sure you have purchased and installed BlockBase+ on your computer and you have downloaded and updated your EQ8 software. The EQ8 update is free. You can obtain the most recent version of EQ8 from your your account on the EQ website.
If you wish to piece this quilt, you will need five six inch blocks. Four of the blocks in teals and one in pinks. There are also 40 2 inch blocks for the tile square border.
What will you do with the Magic Cross block?

Thank you for t he lesson on EQ-8 with the Magic Cross Block. I was wondering if in the future you could make the instructions in the video as a printable document too. The video goes so fast and I would like to practice using the EQ-8 software. Just a suggestion. I appreciate the video!
