An Early Red, White & Blue Quilt July 3, 2012Posted by knitnoid in Uncategorized.
Sew We Quilt and Jane’s Fabrics and Quilts have joined forces to create a Red, White and Blue Blog Hop. Each day 5 or 6 blogs will have a red, white & blue block to share. There may be giveaways. My day is July 11th. The complete schedule can be found at Jane’s Fabrics and Quilts.
I started working on my block almost immediately when I signed up for the hop. I use EQ7 to design blocks and quilts. If you don’t have EQ, check out their website: http://www.electricquilt.com/.
EQ let me play with lots of different blocks and I ultimately came up with two blocks and this quilt:
It uses these two 10″ blocks set on point:
I would love to make this quilt. But look at all those seams in the middle of the first block. I couldn’t get them to match when I made my sample block. So, I went back to the drawing board.
You’ll have to come back on July 11th to see what I came up with. I think it’s as good, if not better than this quilt — and there’s no paper piecing involved!
