EQ8 Lessons with Yvonne-Simple and Beautiful

Posted 11-21-2021 by Yvonne | Posted in: EQ8 EQ8 Lessons with Yvonne Favorite Posts

My experience with teaching quilting and machine embroidery over the years is that the simplest projects are liked the best by the students.  When I present a challenging lesson or a lesson with lots of steps to create amazing designs, I often don’t get people excited about the whole process.  When I give them something incredibly simple and quick to create, they O0h and Ahh over it for months afterward. I like to be challenged to learn more, do better, get more creative, and try things I would normally never do.  I don’t care to repeat the same process more than once because I get easily bored.  The more I have to work to get the results I want, the more I am learning during the process.  That does not mean that I can’t appreciate quick and easy projects. Open your EQ8 and name a new project called ‘Precuts and

Welcome to the EQ8 Block Spotlight series! 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. Let’s get creative! This month’s block: Log Cabin 2 Where to find it: 02 Contemporary Pieced > Houses Design ideas to get you started I used this house block in the border of my first quilt. My initial thought was to keep it a two-color design, but I couldn’t help but throw the navy blue in there for a little extra pop! I wanted to try something more modern for my second quilt. All the fabrics in this one are from Tula Pink collections. Even though the blocks are in rows, I used a custom set layout so I could space the houses and trees just where I wanted them. It takes a
