EQ Block Base – Block 5

Things are starting to shape up in the Electric Quilt Block Base project. This is block number 5 in the project, so the personality of the quilt is starting to emerge.

This block is #1775 in the Block Base software. It was a fast and easy block to sew together which is always a plus. This is a photo of what the blocks look like so far:


The new block posted today is another fun pin wheel block. I can now start choosing colors based on what I have done already to make sure these blocks are going to coordinate. If you use Electric Quilt software, of if you have the Block Base software, it’s not too late to join us in project!

Until next time,


EQ Block Base Sew-Along ~ Block 2

This is block 2741 from Electric Quilt’s Block Base software. It is the second block in the Block Base Sew-Along. (You can get more details by going to the EQ blog at www.doyoueq.com).

I am continuing to use a lavender/purple/lime green color scheme. I made some color changes to the original block by making all the star points a solid dark purple which makes them more prominent. The white area in the floral makes the points disappear at the center, so I should have been more careful with the fabric placement.

These are my first two blocks together:


The lower block looks more blue than it is in person. I am still experimenting with photos in Word Press, which behaves very differently than my prior blogger site, so bear with me!

Hope you are having a great week so far,
