EQ7 Summer Drawing Series

Electric Quilt is hosting a Summer Drawing Series teaching the fundamentals for several drawing styles available in EQ7.  I participated in the first lesson of the series, which was to draw, print, and then actually make the block below.

I found the block easy to draw.  EQ's directions were very clear.  I printed them out, and then just followed the instructions.  Here's one version of the block: 

The little triangles were a bit of a challenge, and the entire block ended up a little skewed.  I used a few kona solids and fabrics from Hoffman's Bouquet Beauties.

I think my second scrappy block came out better.

For this version, I used scraps from one of my scrap tins.
I have a couple of these big tins filled with small scraps

If you have EQ7, I hope that you will try this series.  By the end of the summer we will have drawn and made four different blocks.

We've also been working on a Winnie the Pooh baby quilt for one of my daughter's co-workers.

We have been enjoying playing with chevrons lately

 Happy Quilting ♥

I've linked up with Fabric Tuesday, and Sew Much Ado.
