Playing around with EQ7

I am currently playing around with my EQ7 program...a while ago I got some books on special, one of them 'Pieced Drawing'...Exercises in Pieced block Design by Patti R. Anderson. Quite liked the Offset Shadow blocks that were demonstrated in the book and tried this out yesterday. Here is my block

I have 2 sets of fabric stacks 61/2 x 61/2" of Robert Kaufman fabric from the Leesa Chandler design range. Have been looking for a while what I can do with them. Have 20 different fabrics with 2 pieces each. The fabric is from the Passage to India and Dutch Cottage range...very beautiful.
I think the simple Sawtooth star is perfect for this range as it will show the fabric nicely. I scanned all the fabric pieces into the program and now am looking at different designs to use them up. I quite like this shadow star...mind you, have to think that through a bit further as my two pieces of fabric will just cover this, I think. There would not be a lot of room for error.
Will continue to play a bit more...



  1. Thanks for sharing this, Karin! I love that Offset Shadow block idea. It looks great. Looking forward to seeing just what you do end up doing with those Robert Kaufman fabrics!

  2. The star looks fantastic.
