I was just wondering yesterday how to place a quilt block within my house block in EQ; this morning, I found Barb Vlack's answer to that very question on the EQ Forum (Block, Serendipity, Merge Blocks). Serendipity, indeed! and here are my blocks ready to insert into the quilt layout:
And here's the quilt. I didn't try to refine any of the small quilt block colors but I did try to color the house part so that the set-in blocks would stand out:
I ordered charm packs online (and got border fabrics at the LQS) to make this Cindy Lou Who pattern from Miss Rosie's Quilt Company, Schnibbles line. It said to order three charm packs. Three, thought I, how could you possibly need three, that's so maaaaany. I ordered two. Naturally, two was not enough and in the dark of night, I ordered a third charm pack. Can't do any more on this until it arrives. How could I doubt a nice quilt designer like that?
There are these enticing 1" wide bits left over. Tiny blocks? Tiny log cabins?
So I started making these little blocks and will probably try to make some log cabins with those strips over to the right. And just think, once that third charm pack arrives, there will be even more tiny bits.
Is anybody else going completely insane over this new fabric line?? I scanned the fabrics for EQ and am trying to think of what design you could make with them.....
