The new issue of Modern Quilts Unlimited is out! You can find my article on page 90! It talks about how to make house blocks more modern. There are lots of ideas, tricks and tips includes as well as a lesson which also includes and EQ7 file to download with the following quilts included! I hope you like it!
Every month we post a challenge from Barb Vlack. Maybe it’s to create a table runner, or maybe to design a quilt using only two blocks, but the challenges are great and it’s always something different. Our users (YOU!) create quilts and upload them to display on our website. At the end of the month you get all the EQ7 projects from everyone who entered. Club EQ is a great way to practice using EQ7. It helps to sharpen your skills. You can also learn a lot from looking at other people’s projects and seeing how they did things. May’s challenge is to Use the Photo Patchwork Layout. Read more about it (including some instructions) here. I love Barb’s Photo Patchwork quilts. Did you know you could do this in EQ7? Are YOU up for the challenge?
The HoopSisters Mystery Quilt is an online quilt-in-the-hoop block of the month! You will not know what the final quilt looks like until the very end, in Week 6, when you receive the files on how to lay out your blocks. Sign up begins (this Friday!) May 1st and ends June 15th. Participants get their first week’s files instantly via download! Then, each week following throughout the month of June HoopSisters will release a new set of files and instructions. Finally in Week 6 the final layout is revealed! Aubrey Ellerbrock of HoopSisters says, “EQ7 files are included! And they work perfectly with a Mystery Quilt! EQ allows our customers to play with layout options and colors for our Mystery Quilt. Each week they get an EQ file for that specific block! Then, in Week 6 they get the full EQ file that shows the entire layout!” For more information: Sign up
