Valerie at re-engineered.blogspot.com made a beautiful quilt with split hexagons. What a great idea!
I made one in EQ7. You can download the file here.
Here is how I did it….
After playing around for a bit I decided just to make a long skinny block. Mine is 2 x 30.
I then started a Vertical Strip Quilt. I popped the blocks in and flipped every other one. Then I started playing around.
For this quilt I right clicked on a color then clicked Add Shades & Tints. It will add darker and lighter variations of the color you picked to the sketchbook.
Here is that same quilt after I clicked Random Recolor > Map to fabrics.
The first quilt after Random Recolor Tool > Shift Hue.
The first quilt and Random Recolor Tool > Randomize.
And of course you could make a Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt BUT without Y-seams
