My EQ7 Block Challenge Entry & Bonus Sketches

A few months ago, EQ7 announced it had partnered with Moda for a EQ users block challenge.  The challenge:  Design a block using the new “Fresh Cut” fabric line by Basic Grey.   There was no sewing or presentation involved,  nor was there block size limitations, just plain designing in your EQ7.   I am still slowly learning EQ7 but I after reading the challenge I decided it would be a fun way to make a new block and sharpen my {Read More}

Before I go on though,  if you {Read More}

WIP Wednesday – My First EQ7 Project

I have spent time here and there watching videos and tutorials for beginners (boy do I have a long way to go!!) but this weekend I decided to try and make a block of my own.  I do not know how this program works on non-Apple computers, but I set a 12″x12″ grid on a PatchDraw block set on EasyDraw.  From there I just started playing around and came up with this: {Read More}
