Oh Holy Night Week 9 – Donkey

2015 BoW

Oh Holy Night Donkey

So here we are… Week 9, and just 3 more weeks to go. How are you coming on your project, are you finishing the shapes each week? I’d love to see what your up to, why not upload yours to the Flickr Group so I can see how you are coming along.

This block is an 8×8 shape, the pdf includes both the reversed and non-reversed shapes. It does also include machine embroidery files. However, because there are so few outlines, using the markers makes more sense.

EQ Seasons May Be Over, But It Still Lives On….

EQ Seasons Row Along

EQ Seasons Row AlongI don’t know about you, but the last six weeks has really been an amazing gift.

To bring 19 bloggers together, and thousands of quilters visiting our sites enjoying the patterns and the learning experience with the Electric Quilt tutorials has been a wonderful and joyous delight.

I never dreamed that it would all come together so quickly, and then end just as quick. These weeks have just whizzed right by and before you know it, we’ll be in 2016.

I truly hope you have enjoyed this experience as much as I have, hopefully, you’ve found a few new blogs to follow, left some comments that the bloggers smiled over, and in the end browsed away knowing you had a fun time visiting with us.

EQ Seasons: Week 4 Fall Harvest .. My 3rd Row..



The above was my original pattern, but it’s not the pattern I am releasing.

I really love cornucopia’s, and I felt that my cornucopia got lost in the middle somewhere. So I redesigned this row last month… 

This is the row I am releasing today:

 As you can see, their isn’t much difference, with the minor difference that I eliminated a block on each side. Every block is still their, I just chose to show them differently.
