It’s My Day For The Autumn Appliqued Animals EQ Blog Hop

2013-10 Fall Cow With Pumpkin2013-10 stbs-Fall CowIt’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.

Artwork for this block is from

Here are a few of the lessons I created for you today:

Would you like to own this pattern in the 12 inch block size? It’s free, just download the pdf version of this pattern here.

Do you own EQ already? Download the Project file and you can then print this in the size you want it in. Just unzip it and place it in your EQ Projects folder, open when you need it and print. The block with the background and the motif are both in this project file. You may want to download the pdf as well as it includes all the info, stitch out order, fabric charts etc you would need to create the pattern.
