More Tips On Send To Front & Send To Back

stbs-EQ Send To Front and Back Options

stbs-EQ Send To Front and Back OptionsAnother really old video all the way back from 2013 just sitting in my Video Manager at Youtube.. These are old, but the techniques are sound and still work just fine in EQ. I’m just an inexperienced video maker at that point. This video tho taught me alot about how cool the Send To Front and Back features of the software are. The artwork used in this video is from Diddybag.com and the Holly and Berries pattern has been free on Craftsy since I first released it to my Facebook fans as my gift for 2013. You can also download the pdf, svg, and pj7 here

Halloween Is On My Mind…

Ghost On The Edge 1
Ghost On The Edge 1

Ghost On The Edge 1

Have you ever hummed a song in your head, and thought about different things while humming it.. For some reason, the song “Danny Boy” is in my head today, but I’m thinking about Halloween….

I wanted to share something to get you in a Halloween frame of mind and yes I know it’s still over seven weeks away, but.. this gives you enough time to do something with it.

Ghost On The Edge 1 is Free until September 14, 2015
Ghost On The Edge 2 is $2.00 and is the companion pattern to Ghost On The Edge 1

 

You can see these in a project from when I participated in the 
Black Cat Blog Hop Last Year
Both patterns are available in 4×7, 6×9, and 9×12 sizes.
I also included them in non-reversed and reversed.

 Craftsy is having a 50% off sale this weekend thru September 09, 2015
I’ve already bought the classes I have been wanting, so let me give you a tip about getting classes at half price even when their is no sale.

If a new class has just come out, take the authors name, and put it in your favorite search engine like “Angela Waters Quilter” without the quotes.

Then check their blogs, stores, even facebook pages, sometimes they announce a discount of their new classes at 50% off .. This is the time to get them at the cheapest available time. While I am an affiliate for Craftsy, I totally go searching for those 50% off costs on classes. I don’t get my classes free because I’m an affiliate, I pay for them just like you do. I earn a little bit of money if you click below and that helps me to pay for costs related to offering free patterns on my blog.  So please, give me a click if you can and choose a class.

Happy Labor Day Weekend to all of you in the USA!!

Super Powers Are Here Today!!!

What Is Your Super Power?Now see, when I want to hide, what I created, I use the blog hop picture on my main home page.. 🙂 So you’ll have to step inside to see what I did.. hehehe

I’d like to thank Madam Samm, DMC and Pauline for sponsoring this Blog Hop.

Like some of you, I to have a hard time trying to decide what to do. Trying to decide what your super power is without really bragging about it is difficult.

However, I managed to find something I think I’m good at… so come on in and make my day!!!

52 Blocks Quilt Along – Hoppy Bunny Basket

stbs-Hoppy Bunny BasketHeya Everyone, so glad you’ve stopped by today. While I have owned this domain for nearly 12 years, today is my One Year Anniversary of opening my blog. I’m sew excited and what a fun way to be celebrating it. I am participating in the 52 Blocks Quilt Along. I hadn’t realized when I signed up for this Quilt Along that today was my anniversary, but I’m excited that it just happened that way, and what’s ironic about this, is that one year ago today I opened my blog earlier than planned because I’d jumped into an EQ Blog Hop which was for me, probably the turning point of getting me involved back into quilting again so heavily. If you’d like to participate in this quilt along, please stop over at Persimmon Dreams to read all about it. This bunny block was something I created many many years ago and just kinda forgot about it until I was visiting the 52 blocks quilt along. I was wondering what could I do to participate and then I remembered this block from a quilt I’d made for a friend who was having a baby. As usual, Electric Quilt and Bernina’s Designer Plus Software helped me in creating this block for you today. The basket block in this quilt is part of Electric Quilt and is called the Brittany Block in EQ. I do not know if it’s part of the default blocks or addon blocks. I own every single addon for EQ, so I couldn’t tell you if it is or isn’t. Since it’s pretty basic, I’d say it’s probably a default block. So without further ado, lets get on with the making of this block. Continue reading
