The fabrics used to make this quilt were given to me by Northcott Fabrics.
What I love about EQ8 is once you have drawn a block, you can easily rotate it, edit and change the color. Rockets Red Glare came about as I was playing with Studio 180 Design’s BlockBuster 12 Double Trek . This block is made with the Corner Beam , Tucker Trimmer I tools and the Sliver Technique Sheet.
This is the Original BlockBuster 12 Double Trek Block and the quilt layout I first came up with. It seemed there was too much empty space.
I added a Half Square Triangle in two corners of the block.
I think that made a great difference. I downloaded Northcott Essence Fabric into my EQ8 software to see how it would look…very patriotic, hence the name “Rockets Red Glare”.
Northcott fabrics as always represent high quality. The fabrics I chose to complete my quilt are from the Essence line and are absolutely beautiful.
