EQ8 Lessons with Lori – Add stencils to a quilt

Posted 11-22-2019 by Lori | Posted in: EQ8 Lessons with Lori Uncategorized

This lesson is all about adding stencils to your quilt.  Stencils are the drawings that show the quilting lines on your quilt. You may want to audition different stencils to decide how you might want to quilt your design and to help you figure out what approach you will take when quilting. You can have stencils that go over individual blocks or you can create a stencil that goes over an entire sections of your quilt. For this lesson, I will show you how I quilted the Anchor’s Away quilt from the last lesson.  If you haven’t completed that lesson, you can find it HERE. First, lets talk about the layers of a quilt.  When you are on the Quilt Worktable, you will see three tabs at the bottom of the screen. Layer 1 This layer is made up of pieced or applique blocks that are stitched together to make

EQ8 Block Spotlight: Tulip Tree Leaves

Posted 11-10-2019 by Jenny | Posted in: EQ8 Block Spotlight

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: Tulip Tree Leaves Where to find it: 04 Classic Applique > Crossing Designs A few design ideas to get you started The original block is used in the corners of this first quilt. The center variation block was created by deleting one of the blossoms and then using the WreathMaker feature. Then I used the Frame Block option in Create Serendipity on the WreathMaker block. This quilt also uses a layout from the library (On-Point Medallions – 28). Lots of EQ8 goodness packed into one quilt! The second quilt alternates between a “framed” version of the block and a “tilted” version of the block (both made using
