I have to admit, this one had me a bit stumped, and then a hard drive failure wiped away all my work, I know I keep going on about it, but I’m still upset over losing that drive.. I absolutely love the idea of being able to work with photos, and it’s really nice that EQ has features that allows you to incorporate your photos into quilts you are trying to create.
I was working on the next block design for Fridays Faces when I realized I could do a lesson for you on working in heavily drawn areas of EQ. I had created a video back in December for this, but never uploaded it, and when I rewatched it I realized I don’t do that anymore, I prefer to move the lines. This video shows you how I do that. Enjoy!!
and see, if you take a look at the video, you’ll see a preview of Fridays Faces coming for February 28, 2014. Next tuesday also brings Little Treasures 03. Cya Soon!!
It’s been fun to create this pattern for those visiting this blog hop. I thought I picked a pretty simple pattern, but it turns out it was far more complicated than I thought it was going to be.
There are many parts to this pattern, the templates alone for the 12 inch block take up 3 pages in the pdf file.
Instead of creating a how to draw this pattern, I chose to do some helfpul hints for using EQ instead. These help me on a daily basis, and I hope you will enjoy the different videos I’ve created for this hop. I tried to keep them pretty small, but so far none are over 20 minutes long and most are less than 5 minutes.
This is my last block for Bea’s EQ Applique’D Animal Blog Hop, but is definitely not my last block to ever be made in EQ. This has been such a wonderful and a truly great learning experience for me. I’ve learned from the other bloggers who have also participated in this hop, and my deepest appreciation for your kind comments about the blocks I’ve done has been just really wonderful. Thank You so much. 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.
