A Class of Their Own 1, 2, 3, 4

Several years ago I was asked to teach an Electric Quilt class, and wrote some illustrated notes about a learning exercise based on how I taught myself to use the program.

I opened the file I used to illustrate those notes and started playing, and so a new series of designs has reached the point at which I can start sharing.

It has also reached the point where I am loving many of the designs, including the one above.

Next step is to add the quilting layer to the 5×5 layout as used so far, and add 7×7 layout.

For those of you who are interested in fining new ways to play with Electric Quilt leave a comment, and I will send you a copy of the class notes.

    I would love a copy of the class notes. We are going to Mexico for 5 months this winter and I should have some time to spend on the computer each day. Maybe I will finally learn to use the program to at least a portion of its potential. I like these designs too and especially the addition of the butterfly. These were the wedding colors of my youngest daughter.

    • Cindy,

      The class notes were very basic … mainly to encourage people to select a variety of blocks, choose a basic setting, then play with the blocks to see what can be done with them. The more technical stuff I tried to get them to refer to the manual … and I learned by referring to the manual when I thought EQ would probably let me do something but I needed help from the manual to work it out.

      If I find the notes I will send them to you, but I think I have deleted them, and I know I haven’t got a paper copy anymore. I felt totally out of my depth trying to teach a class, though I have managed to help a few people one on one.
