Again, I used the neat “Create Quilt from Block” feature of EQ7 and drew this layout in the summer of 2010.  On an 8 grid, I drew a 1×2 horizontal space with two 1×2 vertical spaces side by side below it.  In the next column, this unit-of-3 was placed a step down.  (Easier to see than to explain!)

For this quilt design, the ’8 Grid Chain Variation’ block from the EQ library was used.  I drew half of the block for the step-down spaces.  The auto border is ‘Two Birds in the Air’.
