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: Stripes Bordered Inside 4 Where to find it: 10 Sashing > Stripes – Bordered The blocks in this section of the library are designed with sashing in mind, but don’t let that stop you from using these versatile blocks in other ways!

Design & Discover – EasyDraw

Posted 10-01-2021 by Heidi | Posted in: Design & Discover

You may think you know EasyDraw but this month we’re going to talk about some tricks that you may not be aware of! First, the main rule of EasyDraw is that all the lines must touch each other or the edges of the block. In the first block the lines do not touch the edges. In the second block lines are added. In EasyDraw think of your lines as pieced seams. You couldn’t piece the first block, so you can’t draw it that way in EasyDraw either! For our first block we’ll draw a Mariner’s Compass block.  Let’s start with a circle. Click Block Worktable Click NEW BLOCK > Pieced > EasyDraw On the Graph Pad make your block Width and Height: 10 x 10 Make your Snaps Horizontal and Snaps Vertical: 50 x 50 Under Snapping Options turn Snap to Grid Points on Worktable ON Click the Arc tool
