Hello and welcome to my stop on the 100 Blocks Blog Tour! For those of you who are visiting for the first time, here’s a little introduction–
My name’s Jenny Novinsky and I’ve worked here at Electric Quilt for more than 10 years. I started as a graphic design intern during my junior year of college, and they just haven’t been able to get rid of me! I did a little bit of sewing here and there as I was growing up (mostly 4-H projects), but I didn’t become a quilter until I worked here at EQ. I could design a beautiful quilt in EQ long before I could actually sew them. But you can only be surrounded by quilty things for so long before you want to make them yourself, so now my sewing skills have caught up with my EQ skills!
Here’s my Vol. 11 block, #1026 Scout’s Star:
I drafted this block on the EasyDraw Block Worktable of EQ7. Foundation piecing is my favorite piecing technique and I knew I wanted to design something that would incorporate the technique.
This block has a great secondary star design that shows up when you set the blocks side-by-side.
It’s pretty great in a simple on-point layout too!
Thanks for visiting during the Blog Tour! Now for the giveaway–
Not only will a lucky winner receive a copy of the magazine… you’ll also receive a copy of EQ7! That’s the software I used to design my block.
