Judy, of Virtual Quilter, posted her 4th challenge in learning to use Electric Quilt.
We were to select block designs from the previous challenges and learn to create and save libraries in EQ. This was a good reminder for me, since I have many, many blocks from all of my EQ playtime that I have yet to organize into the library. I have got to make time to do this! For this lesson however, I chose a very few variations that I had from Judy’s challenges.
The second part of Challenge 4 was to use the blocks to design a quilt.
I stalled out, since I couldn’t see how these blocks could work together.
Today, I made myself sit down and play with them. How could I know if I could make them work together if I don’t try?
Turns out that I could use more time to play. This was fun!
The above are a nice starting point…similar…the block placement is merely reversed. I like the depth created.
I experimented with simply alternating blocks to visually see how they would look set side by side.
I am really liking these floating ‘bow ties’! Maybe that is because my leader/enders are bow tie blocks.
Then I tried experimenting with featuring a block and using another block for the background.
I will be saving this file! It is worth coming back to and playing some more. There are definite possibilities here! Especially when one begins to play with color, value, adding and deleting lines to create more blocks!
Thanks for pushing me, Judy!
