So on Friday the 23rd of October, it was a fun day filled with haunting surprises of table runners, a trick or treat bag, 2 free patterns, a non blogger with a cool scarecrow, an enchanting bag with a cat, and some very funny haunting deadlines.
Did you know we have a Pinterest Group for Halloween Haunts, Come on over and visit us at PInterest.
Did you remember to get all your entries in for the Fat Quarter Shop Gift Certificate? How about for my Ghoulish Hand Series, did you pick up Monster 06? Monster 07 is here today and Monster 01 thru 06 will now cost $1.00 if you missed them.
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.
It’s been an amazing week full of fun, learning and great times at each of the different sites for Bea’s EQ Applique’D Animals Blog Hop. For me, being a new blog site, I’ve learned not only about EQ itself, but taking care of my blog and how to do things I was not aware of prior to people coming to visit me. I wish to take a moment and thank each of you who visited, especially those of you who left comments, compliments and the wanting to learn. I hope you will take the time, or purchase EQ and realize that your dreams can come true in quilting.
The above image gallery is a beautiful reminder of the sites I’ve learned from this week and a wonderful opportunity for you to continue to visit.
This is the second block I have designed in Electric Quilt.
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 Bee block which I have named Bea’s Bee. If you’d like to learn how to create the block yourself, you can watch the video below, otherwise, feel free to just download the pattern and enjoy. You will find the pattern near the bottom of this post.
My first Blog Hop!! It’s quite typical that I would just jump right in and want to participate in something I think is one of the coolest things going on the web today. Ever since I restarted looking at what’s happening in quilting today and discovering all these great blogs, I have wanted to participate in a Blog Hop.So before I even opened this blog, and before I’d even learned how to applique in Electric Quilt, I signed on to participate. Talk about pressure. Now, where’s that sewing machine foot pedal, I need to get busy and get my block put together. The benefits of participating for me are:
