    Look What I made in 30 min - Great for scraps: paper pieced in 1 unit!

    I was playing around in EQ7 tonight while my DH and 2 teenage boys watch "Doctor Who" behind me. Thought I would share. I wanted something that would use 1 paper pieced unit (no sub units) and that would be good for scraps. I also spent 5 min changing the colors and flipping a few blocks to make a more "Southwest" look to it. The blocks and the size are the same.

    Hope you enjoy the blocks. The pdf is attached just below the pictures for you to download.

    I must have QADD - Quilt ADD - so many patterns, not enough time. I am just going to start posting them more. Glad you like it.

    Love them! Brilliant!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Nice designs - changing the color gives such a different feel to them - along with the design changes.

    That's a nice block--rectangular shape is interesting. Both versions are great. Do you see the hear units formed by Row 1 Blocks 2 and 3 & corner triangles of Row 2 Blocks 2 and 3 and then repeated throughout the quilt. Thanks for sharing. I EQ all the time, too.

    Very fun looking quilt. I really need to learn to make friends with EQ. I was so disappointed to find that just purchasing it doesn't make me a pro with it. Darn! It's just a matter of making myself sit down and play. But reality is, I am more likely to make this quilt than learn the program! Thanks for sharing! Your suggestion of scrappy is dancing thru my head right now...

    Love the block, thanks for sharing. I have already printed it off and enlarged it to 6 x 9 1/2" and added a 1/4" seam.

    thank you so much for the block. CalicoJoan-- you have expressed my very same thoughts to a tee.
    I read your note and immediately said, "that's me".

    That is very generous. I'm afraid to buy EQ7. I would never leave the computer!

    Johanna, what is the EQ7? I gather it's a program off the computer that I don't have. I've never paper pieced and don't know where to start. Love your colors, thank you for sharing.
