This week I’ve been working on these red poinsettia blocks. This design is from Anne at Springleaf Studios. In 2015 she hosted this Christmas Quilt-along, and I’ve had it on my list ever since. Back in late 2014 I designed something similar, my Spring Violets quilt. The units in my new project are 4.5″ instead of 3.5″, and the blocks finish at 16″. I’m making a total of nine for this throw quilt.
Also this week, I downloaded the update from EQ7 to EQ8. (If you get it by Nov. 13, there is a discount.) So far, so good. I created a mock-up of this quilt on which I’m working (although I see I oriented the flowers differently!) I can also, with a little fuss, access my old projects.
Do you use EQ? When did you start? I came in on EQ2. Later I had 4, and then 7 for many years. I don’t use all the features, but I like to play with blocks and secondary patterns, and I love how it does the math for me!
And I’ve listed the Star Trek pillow cases in my Etsy Shop, if you need a gift.
