Sometimes those applique tools in EQ8 can be a bit scary to figure out. In my newest tutorial we will focus on three of them while creating a "new chick" block and quilts.
With a few more clicks in EQ, the quilt can be modified to add a second block. Giving me a choice of two different piecing options. I haven't decided which one I prefer. What do you think?
Enjoy the video.
If you would like to share a picture of your newly hatched chicks, I've set up a post on the Learning EQ Facebook group.
