Scroll down for a virtual quilt show by Tech Know Quilter members. There are many wonderful new blocks and quilts designed using EQ8. Included is a special exhibit of circular quilts by Tech Know Quilter Masters members.
Star 60 Miniature Quilt Design
Since then, I have received my ruler and realized you could use this tool for miniature hexagons. So I decided to go back to the drawing board and create a miniature hexagon quilt that was Star 60 friendly.
The quilt was designed using a one patch layout. It also uses a template designed in the video on May 23rd.
Here is the link to the free Equilateral Triangle calculator used in the video.
Next week I am hoping to share my construction techniques for this quilt. It will be your chance to see how I use the Star 60 tool to both cut pieces and trim down sections.
Tech Know Quilter Design Showcase
I love sharing a few of the awesome quilts designed by Tech Know Quilter members. Tech Know Quilters is a paid membership program for those serious about mastery of Electric Quilt 8. You can learn more here and sign up for the wait list for the next open enrollment period.
Apply What You Learned Challenge Quilts
At the end of their June classes, Tech Know Quilter members were encouraged to apply what they learning during June. Those in the Modern Quilts class were encouraged to design a Gees Bend inspired quilt and those in Masters were encouraged to design their own Custom Set quilt in Electric Quilt.
Carol Fox A while ago my friend Riette bought and made one of Judy Niemeyer’s pattern “Fire Island Hosta”(http://www.quiltworx.com/patterns/fire-island-hosta/). At that time I tried to draft it on EQ8 but no avail. Recently I came upon another Judy Niemayer’s design: Blue Lagoon (http://www.quiltworx.com/patterns/blue-lagoon/). As my EQ8 skill has improved since my first try, I decided , as an exercise, to tackle the task again. With Kari’s help I was able to draft it this time. My next project : draft my own Judy Niemeyer style design.
Joyce Drenth The second challenge was 'Bucket List'. Since i already created a quilt of that title this year, I decided to try a new technique on my bucket list. Trispective quilt. Here is my rendition after making a block sized to fit my dimensions. I sized 3 photos of my quilts to dimensions fitting the block size, added them as fabric and fussy-cut them into their respective slots. I printed off the blocks onto fabric and constructed the quilt. So happy!
Watch the video to see the quilt(s) change as the camera moves.
TKQ Masters - Circular Quilts
Tech Know Quilters members are eligible for the Masters program after completing 12 months of Tech Know Quilter classes. During June they worked on Advanced Custom Set and learned to create circular quilts in Electric Quilt.
Masters members receive fewer lessons each month, with more time to devote to their own projects and challenges.
I am in love with their designs.
Congratulations to Joyce Drenth who won the EQ8 design challenge on working with Century Solid fabrics by Andover. Here was her Electric Quilt Design
Electric Quilt Expert and Educator and Pattern Designer.
