Happy New Year!
We finally got some snow. I am so thankful for a neighbor that shoveled my driveway for the last two snowfalls.
Since snow has been on my brain, I played a bit in Electric Quilt to design a new snowflake table runner. Here is the table runner and the main block.
This weeks video is the first part of creating this project using Electric Quilt. I've included a close-up of the snowflake block, as I think it is usually easiest to draft a block by tracing it. You have my permission to save a copy of this block to your computer for your personal use.
The Electric Quilt video tutorial will include (1) importing a block for tracing; (2) set up and use of Easy Draw for drafting the block and (3) Finding and Adding Additional Fabrics using the "Find by Color" method in the Fabric library.

Introduction to Electric Quilt Online Class Starting January 26th
One item I keep hearing from readers is the challenge in finding hands on Electric Quilt classes. Search no more! I am now offering an online version of my Introduction to EQ class.
This online class will cover basic navigation of the software, creating a new project, using the libraries, using Quick Quilts for fast projects, adding borders, coloring tools/fabrics, creating quilt labels and printing quilts, blocks, fabric yardage estimates, rotary cutting and foundation patterns. By the end of the two sessions you will be comfortable working with the program and be able to explore additional features on your own. Users of all levels are welcome, with special emphasis on beginners.
Dates: January 26 and February 2nd. 6:30 - 9:00 pm (Central time)
Class size will be limited to 10 participants. We will use screen sharing technology -- so you will be able to see my screen and if you have specific questions, I will also be able to view yours as well.
