Welcome to the EQ8 Block Spotlight! Each month we highlight a block from the EQ8 Block Library with a few design ideas. Then we want you to show us what you can do with the block. We hope these posts will inspire you to try something new and expand your EQ skills! :-D

This month’s block: Crazy Fan

Where to find it: 03 Foundation Pieced > Crazy Blocks – Misc.

Design ideas to spark your creativity

I used the featured block in the border of my first quilt. I decided to fully embrace the “crazy”  :-D and choose blocks from the Crazy Blocks – Simple section for the center of the quilt.

My second quilt uses the On-Point Medallions – 2 design from the Layout Library. I used the Search >> By Color option in the Fabric Library to add a selection of blues to my project.

What would you design with the Crazy Fan block? Post a quilt or two in the comments below. It can be as simple or as complex as you’d like (it just has to use the featured block!).
