Pandemic Ghost Parade
I am not sure how many trick-or-treaters will be out and about tonight. But my group of ghosts from the the Ghost Parade blog post on October 26, 2018 decided they needed to wear masks to protect both themselves and the houses they plan to visit.
Here is the original Ghost Parade tutorial. It covers drafting a foundation friendly ghost block and placing and resizing the basic ghost block for a custom set quilt using Electric Quilt 8. Thank you to Nancy Witte, who provided me the inspiration for this quilt.
Here are instructions to modify the block to add a mask. The updated quilt was colored with the Hocus Pocus fabric from Robert Blake.
Here is the quilt from the 2nd video.
Tech Know Quilters Virtual Quilt Show
Tech Know Quilters is a membership of Electric Quilt 8 owners who are mastering Electric Quilt through online training. At the end of their September class, they were encouraged to apply what they learned during the month of September.
Tech Know Quilters is open to new members only a few times a year. You can sign up for the wait list here and we will notify you of the next open enrollment period..
I love having people at different stages of the EQ journey submitting designs. I am so proud of this group of quilt designers.
Debbi Treusch I took the Design to Production class this month. I picked some paper piecing tips that I applied to a quilt in progress. The quilt is 4 identical 8 X 8 quadrants and almost all blocks are paper pieced. I'm doing paper piecing in sets of 4 blocks. Each bag has 4 blocks with foundation templates and rotary cutting for each patch. The tips I picked up for calculating the number and size of the patches are really helping this to go along faster and with less cutting/piecing mistakes, especially on those really odd angles. Great class!!
TKQ Masters Create an Original Quilt Inspired by Another Quilt Challenge
In September Tech Know Quilter's Masters members were challenged to find a quilt they liked and use it as inspiration to design their own original quilt.
Tech Know Quilter Masters members have completed at least 12 months of classes in Tech Know Quilters and are some of the more advanced members in the group.

I love your masked ghosts. It is always inspiring to watch the slide show of your students work. There are a lot of creative quilters.
