Back to Electric Quilt blocks.
I have always loved the KISS principle, ‘Keep it Simple, Stupid!’ The EQ Dozen quilts look quite complicated, but they are simply blocks arranged in simple straight settings. It takes just a few minutes to change a few blocks in the regular pattern to create a different quilt in Electric Quilt. However, I have decided I will never make one of them, because how could I pick out just one?
Anyone with EQ6 can find the blocks and most of the fabrics (the paisley was a monthly download from Electric Quilt I think) or I can send you a copy of the file containing just the handful of fabrics, the twelve blocks and one ‘changed’ block, and the sampler quilt shown below. Just leave a message asking nicely and I will send it in the next couple of days, but only until the end of the month. After that you will have to do the search, or just watch what I have done!
You could also start your own EQ 12, by selecting 12 blocks and about the same number of fabrics, and using them in any way you can think of in a a quilt layout of your choice.
