Summer Animals – EQ Applique’d Animals Blog Hop

Caterpillar LessonThis is the first block I have designed in Electric Quilt. Thanks go to Bea for letting me join this Blog Hop, The tutorial at DoYouEQ called Tracing In PatchDraw, Electric Quilt who creates this software for us to play in. The Graphics Shoppe who’s images I used to create my blocks for this blog hop. Today I have created for my Summer Animal a Caterpillar block. If you’d like to learn how to create the block yourself, you can watch the video how to, otherwise, feel free to just download the pattern and enjoy.

Feel free to download my videos if you prefer to view them offline.

As a note here I did discover that my overlaps are a little wide, but because this is a applique block for hand or normal machine methods, (Not Machine Embroidery), I felt it was ok to just leave the overlap in place.

As an additional note here, if you create something with my block, I have created additional blocks to go with the three created for the blog hop, you need to send me an image to display on my site of your finished block. (No need to put it in a project or even finished project, just seeing how you stitched it out would be awesome), I will send anyone who sends me a image of the finished block the entire suite of blocks to go with the Summer theme.

I love the cute caterpillar!! Thanks for the chance to win!


I like your caterpillar the best, so cute and cuddly looking.

I love your caterpillar, that’s why I want a Electric Quilt program. I do a lot of my designing by paper and then try to figure out the patten on graph paper. It takes so long when I do it that way. I’m kinda picky about my quilting and since I do a lot for donations, I want it to be perfect. I’m going to try your pattern by hand, its just so adorable. I love making different animals for each of my quilts. Thanks for your ideas and thanks for the chance to enter.

removed your email so it wouldn’t get spammed.
