Join me for a brand new challenge to grow your Electric Quilt skills -- or rebuild your skills if you have fallen away from using the software.
The Challenge starts June 8th.
Scroll down for some short videos to set yourself up for success during the challenge.
If one of you plans for this summer is to finally get comfortable using Electric Quilt 8, then this upcoming challenge is for you. Or maybe you have lost some of your motivation during the quarantine and are looking to get back into using EQ. If so this challenge is for you as well. The challenge starts Monday, June 8, 2020.
For two weeks I will be providing you over 12 videos on creating a series of flower blocks in EasyDraw.
If you are new to drawing your own blocks, this will get you comfortable in using the EasyDraw to redraw your favorite blocks or create your own.
For those who have been using Electric Quilt for a while, you will have an opportunity for some extra practice on figuring out the snaps horizontal and vertical in EasyDraw which will carry over into all you designing.
There is a small fee ($12) that I am charging to handle the extra administrative expenses associated with the challenge. I also have found that enrollees are much more engaged when they pay to participate. And when they are engaged, their skills grow at a much higher rate.
If you haven't signed up for the challenge, please make sure to do that today.
Videos to Set You Up for Success for the Upcoming Challenge
I've put together three short videos to give you a head start for the challenge:
Video 1: Setting Up Your Project File and Adding Fabrics
Do you enjoy the fabric and quilt inspiration on the Do You EQ website? Each month Electric Quilt gifts us with a free fabric download that contains a perfectly cropped and sized fabric library with one of the latest fabric collections.
In this tutorial, I will share with you how to download one of those free fabric collections and set up your project for the Summer Flower Garden Challenge.
Video 2: Exporting a Block Image for Facebook
When exporting a block for a post you wish to share on Social Media, there are the process can be different than sharing a quilt. In this tutorial, learn how to export an image of a block and then add it to a Facebook post.
Video 3: Importing an Image for Tracing
If you haven't enrolled in the challenge, now is the time. I look forward to working with you to become more comfortable in drafting your own blocks.
