This is probably amongst the coolest techniques I’ve learned thus far in EQ.
I’d like to first thank Barb Vlack for turning me on to this technique that she created as she says as long ago as possibly version 4.. so with that idea in mind, it should at least work in versions 5, 6, and I know for a fact it works in version 7 and maybe even beyond.
Creating holes in EQ until now has been what I consider impossible. The only way I could think of to do it was to place shapes over each other. I remember when I first asked about this, one of the tech support tried to explain their way of doing it, but I just didn’t get it. Until Barb sent me a sample project file, I too didn’t really understand until I looked at the project file. Once I did that, it was like a light bulb going off in my head.
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 lesson I mention in my previous video when showing you how to create the Butterfly Motif block in Electric Quilt. It is a short video, just over 5 minutes in length. Enjoy!!
This is the second block I have designed in Electric Quilt.
