Heads up -- there is a brand new Tech Know Quilter's class starting on March 2nd. Read more below.
But first -- the final installment on the Winter's Game Quilt...
During the past month, I've shared a number of posts to honor those in the winter Olympics. In today's post, we will cover two additional blocks in the Winter Games quilt plus the quilt layout.
Alternate Block 1 Interlocking Friendship Rings
This block was originally designed in 2016. As a result the video tutorial for drafting the block is for EQ7 -- but for those familiar with EQ8 the techniques are easily adapted.
Feel free to import the following block for tracing.
Alternate Block 2 - Winter Games Snowflake Block
The Winter Games Snowflake block was started by bringing in the Hexagonal block from the EQ8 Library. I deleted 6 lines and added six new lines. Turn on Snap to Node to add the additional lines. This one is super fast to draft. This block would be best pieced by using templates.
Winter Games Quilt Layout
See how to create the layout using Electric Quilt 8 in my current video tutorial.
Here is the final quilt presented with the Winter's Game fabrics from Benartex.
