Lesson 5


Posted 06-28-2020 by | Posted in: Design and Sew Along EQ8 Lessons with Yvonne Favorite Posts Lesson 5

  Welcome to  Design and Sew 2 Lessons with Yvonne.  This is lesson five (5) in this series and the last lesson of this series.  We will be looking at blocks and changing the EQ8 program/project settings to edit existing block drawings.  We will also continue working with unique layouts for quilts built into the program library.  Color plays a significant role in how we view the quilts and we will discover how to change the color settings in the EQ8 program. Be sure to watch the video at the end of the blog first to get a feel for how the lesson will be laid out.  A picture is worth a million words! We want to see what you have created in this series of lessons so be sure to add your comments and images of your layouts to the blog in the comments box at the bottom. Refer back

Welcome to the DESIGN AND SEW ALONG WITH YVONNE Lesson 5.  This is the final lesson in this series.  We will add a block border to our previous blocks and explore how the EQ8 program helps us to accomplish this.  I often do not think of a border until the center of my quilt is constructed.  This way I can try out different border options to see what will work best with the center blocks I have designed.  Instead of posting our blocks to the blog page at the end of this lesson, I am asking that you post the image of your completed quilt layout for others to see. Launch your EQ8 program from your desktop. On the opening page, click on ‘open an existing project’ and navigate to your DESIGN AND SEW WITH YVONNE project. Confirm that you have your project open by seeing the title of the
