Learn to draft an easy asymmetrical block, and color it with a Spooky Hollow, a fabric collection by Melissa Mortenson that was produced by Riley Blake Designs.
The Spooky Hollow fabric collection is part of EQ Stash Online - 2021 Download 01 which is available for purchase from EQ. For those that were on my webinar earlier this week, you learned how you can download the collection from the Riley Blake website. Feel free to refer back to the pdf for the webinar for including fabrics directly from the Riley Blake website.
Then use Symmetry in Electric Quilt 8 to audition various rotations of the blocks.
I think this creates a great quilt for Halloween.
Enjoy this free EQ8 tutorial.
Here is the Spooky Stars block and my favorite Symmetry quilts using the Spooky Stars block.
Spooky Stars Block Construction using Folded Corners
I often receive questions on how I would approach piecing a particular block. For this block, the most efficient cutting chart is not the one produced by Electric Quilt.
Instead I would cut squares and rectangles as noted in the annotated diagram below.
FC is my abbreviation for Folded Corner. It is a square piece of fabric that is sewn onto another square or a rectangle.
If you haven't used folded corners, it is a very efficient want to work with patches with 45 degree angles. Here is how to construct a folded corner.
After adding the Folded Corners on the square and rectangular base units, combine units per diagram below.
