Donna from Chookyblue blogspot is hosting a Sew-A-Long and I thought I would join in. Heck, you must have read yesterday's BREAKING NEWS! lol
I decided to open EQ8 to work out the layout. I am not that fond of EQ8 but it is what it is. Sometimes updates are not always a good thing. I've owned EQ for numerous years, since EQ2 ... let's just say I had to update due to Apple's recent change in their system ... we'll leave it at that.
Back to the quilt. The suggested block size is 9 inches ...
I love small blocks and have been thinking about doing a 6 inch block. I'm going for the crappy look. This is what the layout would look like.
That's a lot of blocks to piece ... but so pretty. I do like small blocks, they require smaller pieces. It would certainly put a dent in the scrap fabric stash. My bins are overflowing!
Now, this is what the quilt would look like with a 9 inch block ... less blocks to piece!
A different look, but pretty none the same.
Well, I guess I have some thinking to do.
Catch you all later! Cheers!
oh they both look great.......what size are you thinking now???
I’m planning to sell on too. I guess I need to get busy and find my fabrics!
Ooh! Another churn dasher. I have my fabrics, I just need to make a start.
I do love small blocks, too, but I knew if I was going to go against my decision not to join SALs this year, I needed to make it as simple as possible. I am sticking with the 9" blocks. If you go with the smaller blocks, I will definitely be cheering you on! :)
Both are beautiful!
Glad to hear you are joining in too! I'm doing mine from EQ also and it is an UFO from 2014 .... so will just continue working on it. My blocks will be 10" and 5" in the cornerstones. There will be applique in the sashing. There will be a post soon about it.
