If you follow my blog you know I have a female chihuahua named “Tucker”. Tucker is definitely in charge!
Tucker keeps a close eye on everything I’m doing. All that supervision makes her sleepy. She will climb on my head to get me to go to bed by 7:30 at the latest. I’m not ready to sleep that early, so I am usually on my laptop. Last night I was playing with EQ8. I was drawing the BlockBuster patterns by Deb Tucker. It is so much fun seeing what the blocks will look in quilt.
One of the blocks I was playing with last night BlockBuster 10 Twisted Pinwheel. This block has a 4 patch in the center, High/Low units & Sidekick units made with the V Block tool and Sidekick High\Low Technique Sheet. I was able to load fabric scans of Island Batik fabrics into the EQ8 software.
I decided to design the quilt with 12″ finished blocks, on point, adding sashing with 6″ Twisted Pinwheels as cornerstones and Piano key outer borders. What a nice way to end summer! Have a great weekend everyone!
