EQ8 Tutorial: Two Ways to Color; Quilt Block Mania
I’m partnering with The Electric Quilt Company to promote EQ8 design software for a couple of months, and to that end, I shot a video showing two different ways to color a design in EQ8.
If you’re unfamiliar with the software, just sit back and enjoy the view and don’t worry about feeling a little lost. When you actually have the software, you start from the very beginning and learn one small step at a time. Everything builds on something you already know!
Here, we are jumping right into the meat of things and it may feel like drinking from a fire hose! Rest assured that there’s plenty of free help to launch you into coloring, designing and playing with EQ8.
To get started, use code EQ8STASHBANDIT for 20% off everything at electricquilt.com. Doesn’t that sound like fun?
Do you see those big white spaces in the quilt on the video? Here’s the plan:
In just a few more days, I’m excited to be part of Quilt Block Mania, where 30 designers will have original block designs posted on their websites at no charge. Each block uses a similar color palette and has a Halloween theme. There are some incredibly adorable designs!
My block will go into one of those spaces.
But wait! There’s more! 😉
Each week, I’m going to release another companion block so that before long, you’ll have a whole set of them! And I designed it so that the other blocks in #quiltblockmania will fit in the spaces where you currently see the Log Cabin Pumpkins (a pattern which I’m also going to release).
So you’ll have lots of options and enough free quilt block patterns to keep you busy until Christmas!
Make my day and do this:
- Visit electricquilt.com and poke around!
- Use code EQ8STASHBANDIT when you make any purchase through the end of September and get 20% off at electricquilt.com.
- Watch the video to get a taste of the fun!
