A block design made up of squares and rectangles can be used as layouts for whole quilts, and I had fun designing a whole heap of blocks especially for this purpose. This project file is all basic pieced blocks used … Continue reading

The design above uses one of the features of Electric Quilt, where a block using only squares and rectangles can be used as a quilt layout. In this case this is how you could make a ‘wholecloth’ quilt from two … Continue reading
