I just got back from a fantastic time with the Lees Summit Quilt Guild in Lees Summit Missouri. They were very welcoming and a blast to work with. A number of ladies went through three Electric Quilt classes in two days to really get to know the software.
The last day was a piecing class for Whim Wham Stars where they had a chance to play with one of my favorite patterns. This one used 3 different rulers, which we had a chance to work with during the class.
I am sorry to say I forgot to take pictures -- but hoping that the group will share their finished projects with me in the future.
I also got a chance to spend the evenings with my sister and her family. Great meals and an introduction to 24 hours of back to back college basketball.

This week Electric Quilt posted a picture of a quilt on the Yahoo Electric Quilt group -- and were curious if their were suggestions on creating this in Electric Quilt.
I spent an hour and played with the concept and came up with this.
See how I created a couple of the "blocks" for this quilt in under five minutes.
Once the units were complete, I set them in a custom set quilt. Resizing and rotating was pretty much trial and error.
I have a couple of additional blocks that I hope to share in a future video.
