This week, I decided to focus on using the same layout -- but eliminate the stars and stripes. For this tutorial, you will definitely want to start by watching the one from last week as you will need the layout and blocks as a starting point.
This time I chose to use a different fabric collection along with a couple of different four patch blocks.
The fabric collection I chose to work with was Stitchy. The Benartex collection was designed by Christa Watson and has a very modern feel to it. It is the free fabric download from Electric Quilt for July 2022. You can access and download the free collection here.
Here are the quilts from the video.
I would love to see your variations of the Modern Stars and Stripes quilt. Please feel free to share you variations in the Learning EQ Facebook group.
Tech Know Quilters Virtual Quilt Show
One thing I hear over and over again is -- I didn't know you could do "that" using Electric Quilt 8. I have found that the main thing that holds us back from truly using Electric Quilt 8 is just not understanding that this versatile software can help you create any type of quilt. I think you will be inspired by the quilts created by Tech Know Quilter members using Electric Quilt 8.
Tech Know Quilters is a membership program focused on mastery of EQ8. We have members at all stages of their Electric Quilt journey.
If you would like to join this amazing group of quilters, you can sign up for the wait list here.
