I am so excited by my new abilities which are pretty slim in EQ. After starting on the Pieced Drawing book by Patti Anderson and only having gone through most of chapter 1, I was able to draw this pattern out. Whoo Hoo!!!!

I drew it out in an 8 in block and came up with 2 blocks set on point that make up this pattern. I didn't try to design the whole quilt to the outside setting triangles....a little bit beyond my capability right now. So is turning the quilt to make it on point....so just imagine this at a tilt. haha

This is what I came up with. Hope you like it.

Wow Barb! That's fantastic. I also liked the block setup and had sketched it on paper but yours is so much easier to understand. I have been toying with asking Santa for EQ. Hmmmm just might now.

Glad you like it. The manual for EQ has so much info in it that I would get confused as I jumped around trying to study what I thought I needed to know. I did all the lessons in the EQ7 program and still wasn't really getting it. This book, Pieced Drawing Exercises in Pieced Block Design in EQ7 by Patti Anderson is really helping me. There's probably 2 more bocks that need to be drawn to make the side blocks that finish out the pattern. Maybe I'll figure that out later today.

So often I have seen a quilt that I liked & just didn't know name or the blocks that created the quilt. Now that I'm developing my skills, I know that I will be able to recreate just about any of them. It is a great program. I will say that I have never used any of the others, so can't comment on whether this is the best or not. But, as you can tell, I LIKE it!!!

I just noticed that the way I drew it would cause a lot of Y seams. I am going to redo the square in a square to have long legs on each side so that the center is the only one with seams. SOOOO much to learn.

Really a great job Barb! I am going to attempt this one myself in EQ7!

I redid the square in a square to eliminate the Y seam. Oddly, to me, this looks harder to sew, but I know it is easier. Have a Look. And I did this in about 5 minutes. This is FUN!

Hi Barb,

I hope you don't mind a little EQ tip. You can export an image of your project or your block very easily by using the File/Export Image command. You can play with the settings to get a size you like and then you'll be able to save it as a JPG.

I do a lot of design in EQ, and after a while it was difficult for me to figure out which file I needed to open by the file name. I exported a JPG for each of my designs and named them with the file name. Now I just go to the folder I exported them to and I can look through the thumbnails until I find the quilt design I'm looking for.

Hope this helps!

Lynda

Thank you LyndaOH for the tip. What's sad is I started with EQ5 and am just now beginning to understand it. I am going to look for the File/Export Image command and take your tip and start that EQ7 design folder. If I get hung up with EQ, could I private message you?
