Designer Duo QAL Block 3
I can’t believe Week 3 is here already! It’s time for the first of four blocks I drew up for this quilt, Spotted Stars.
When Nancy Rink first told me I could use any 12” blocks I wanted for parts of this pattern, my imagination took off. I thought about using blocks from books I loved, but I wanted them to be accessible for anyone who might want to make my version of this quilt. Then I remembered I could draw up my own blocks in EQ8, so I did that!
I loved the freedom of being able to include shapes that would complement the quilt design, while also adding in curved edges, which I felt would help the flow of the blocks.
If you want to make your own version of this block, you can download the templates here (and don’t forget to square up those curved units to 3.5” before piecing them in to a block).
