Black Tie Blog Hop… Second Day = My Day!!

My Little Country HenLovin This Turkey!!Country RoosterI’ve been anticipating this blog hop since I first signed up for it.  At the time, I was at a sheer loss as to what black tie’s had to do with turkeys, chickens, hens, and roosters. Alas, I got to work looking for inspiration on what I could make. Suffice it to say, when I find the artwork, I simply couldn’t decide what I liked more, so I did 3 blocks.

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.

Have a great day,
