New Years Eve Celebration Block
Growing up, our parents would let us stay up on New Year's eve. We would closely watch the clock so we would know exactly when it was time to blow our paper horns and wish each other Happy New Year.
If you are a clock watcher on New Year's eve -- create your own clock using Electric Quilt 8.
This tutorial will share how to use PolyDraw and add some simple Applique shapes.
PolyDraw has some unique features that often makes is the best option for working with blocks based on a circular grid.
The block in the video was colored using the October 2019 free fabric download from Electric Quilt 8 -- Valley by Sherri & Chelsi for Moda. You can find and download the collection here.

Kristy Goodin Soard -- Immediately upon learning I was to design a sampler quilt, my mind harkened back to my days of designing counted cross stitch samplers for various publishers. I also wanted to make a memory quilt to honor my maternal grandma, and when those two thoughts meshed this quilt resulted.
Sabine Neuberger I love the patterns of Elizabeth Hartman and the technique she uses. Therefore I always wanted to draft a pattern, where I can apply this technique. Well, some of my blocks are pieced traditionally, but that does not bother me. I have used fabrics from my stash and I am sure, with some other nice fabrics it could even look better.
Camille Lechliter I'm doing Intro to Applique and I love being able to work with curves. Barbara Brackman posted a photo yesterday of an old quilt at an Oregon show that I fell in love with. Here's my quilt. I made one wedge and then stretched and pulled them to fit. As I was laying in bed last night I realized this being rainbow colors that there are 6 x 2 pieces.

Cat Edwards Beckstead With some help from Kari I was able to draft a quilt from one of my history books. The quilt was intended for the 1933 Worlds Fair but the quilter got sick and wasn't able to send it in. This is a quilt that I will make.The picture on the left is my draft. The one on the right is from the book.
