I’ll also be posting the rest of my Wicked 3 project as well, with a freebie or two for you. With my back out for that week, I just wasn’t able to finish it, but I have today finished my Black Tie Boogie project, and am working on my Wicked 3 project.

Club EQ October 2013

2013-10-Club EQ Diamond PatchThe Diamond Patch is the quilt I created for October 2013’s Club EQ. The idea of Club EQ this last month was to work on a quilt from a certain section known as Sashing and Cornerstones that is new to EQ7. There were some really amazing quilts created from this section. I personally had a difficult time with it, I do not know why nothing seemed to call to me. I have to be inspired to create a quilt. I can’t tell you how many times I have created a quilt, only to change it’s design, or the way it’s laid out. My favorite type of quilts to make are those in the style of log cabins. Not necessarily the log cabin itself, but where the design of the quilt gives you various layout options.

I can honestly say that I love seeing what other people come up with each month. It’s not only inspiring, but many times I’ll ask myself, how did they do that. I want to do that to. I hope you to will consider joining Club EQ, it can be challenging and it can be fun.

If you’d like to see the other entrants from October 2013, please visit them here.

Have a great day,

Marian

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 Diddybag.com

Wicked 3 Is Here!!!

Wicked 3Wicked 3 is here and I am super excited. It’s always fun to participate in a blog hop, however, some of them you just look more forward to than others. Whether I’m participating in one or not, I look forward to them all, but Halloween is a special time of year. I don’t know many people who haven’t experienced Halloween that don’t love that time of year. Halloween for me reminds me of many things in life, summer is over, and fall is here with winter fast approaching. It reminds me of my sister who decorates for Halloween as if it was Christmas. It also reminds me of all the fun I had as a child with trick or treating. In those days, you went trick or treating on the day of Halloween with the exception of sundays when we did it on Halloween Eve instead (saturday night). There weren’t any silly limits like now a days, hearing of drugged up treats or other nasty horrible things were just not done and it still saddens me that these things could happen. Of course, about the only thing I dislike intensely about Halloween is horror movies. I’ve never liked them, it doesn’t have to be Halloween, I still won’t go see one.

If you’d like to see the participating sites, this post will be updated daily to show those sites participating. Come and Enjoy the fun, even if you don’t have Halloween in your country, you can still appreciate the fun and amazing adventures it does entail. My day is October 29, and I have something very fun stirring in my pot for you.
