Back in March, Judy, the Virtual Quilter, posted Virtual Quilt Challenge #5.
We were to select a block from the EQ Library and play with it. We are learning to create applique designs!
Judy gave more examples here and here.
I wish I had more time, because this is a really fun challenge! As I play, more ideas keep coming, but this will have to do for now.
I chose to work with the block that is in the upper left square.
I am saving this file so that I can come back and play!

I am late to the party, but better late than never.
I participated in the Virtual Quilts first challenge to use Electric Quilt 8 to play with a block. The result of that challenge is here.
Challenge #2 was to select one of my virtual designs and add Christmas colors.
I chose the Alpine Cross from this blog post to play with.
* You can also find the Alpine Cross by clicking on the Quilt Blocks tab above my header. There are more designs there for inspiration.
How I originally colored it:
Now in Christmas colors:
Thanks for the fun, Judy!
Judy, of Virtual Quilts fame, issued a challenge to use the Electric Quilt 8 program.
The hardest part of this first challenge was for me to make the time to actually do it.
And then, it didn’t take that much time after all.
Judy challenged users to select an Antique Mosaic block from the Classic Pieced EQ Library.
That was simple.
I chose Mosaic, No. 5(2).
Here is the color version from the library:
And here is my colored version, using fabrics from the default fabric library:
We are challenged to add at least four seam lines, and play with color placement.
We are also challenged to delete lines.
This was a fun little challenge. If you are an EQ user, perhaps you’d like to join the fun!
There is an Electric Quilt Facebook group that you might like to join. I am going to link this blog post there.
