EQ8 Design Challenge, B2

Hi Everyone! I always love a sunny Saturday 😊

I’m excited to share this post with you because the “Do You EQ Challenge” got me to FINALLY explore my EQ8 design software! What was I waiting for? Wellll, you know, I needed to make the choice to have some “me time.” Can you relate? Yes, I’m sure you can. So here it is…

The challenge was to use the Chicago Star Block shown here and design a quilt. Game on! I love designing patterns and BONUS I’m using EQ8! Goals, Check. Happy girl here.

Chicago Star

Hmmm, now to spice it up into a quilt top…
First, I put the block on point and then after some various selections I found the flying geese were an absolute match. I love the way the geese make the arrow in the Chicago Star even more pronounced.

Next, to add a a bit of color. I found the gradation of these teal tones to be so refreshing. Just perfect when you’re thinking about diving into some cool water on a hot summer day.

And there you have it, a lovey wall hanging measuring 25” x 25”.
