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. The Graphics Shoppe who’s images I used to create my blocks for this blog hop. Today I have created for you a butterfly block. It specializes in using the shapes tools in Patch Draw instead of the freehand tools. One part of this block uses the freehand tools, but everything else was created via the shape tools. I hope you will enjoy it. The other part of this lesson discusses motif versus blocks. In the video, I mention a second lesson, it will be uploaded to this page once I have it edited and uploaded to youtube later today. I just didn’t have time to get both done. I made the decision yesterday to change my block because I got to thinking that the flower block I was going to do was using the same techniques as the first two blocks I had already done and I really wanted to give a different technique for my last block. So I ended up having to make a new video, getting it edited, and uploaded. I hope you will enjoy this block.
Feel free to download my videos if you prefer to view them offline.
