Well time slipped away and then I was sick while I was on vacation for Christmas, that was a bummer. We still had a nice Christmas I just didn't do some of the little extra stuff I do. No one noticed.
I made one block and there are a total of 15. I like to make one so I see the fabrics the way they are suppose to go. I really like the red and the blues, I am not happy about the lights, especially the middle one. He won't notice he will just like it any way.

Tonight I did some more sewing and I have the second light on all the 7 centers I have made. The stars take the most time.

My first design is one I present in each of my Beginner's EQ7 classes. It is one of my "Let Me Dazzle You Tricks". I show this and another trick so they can go home and dazzle someone. It is easy and fun.
First you draw a 9 patch block and draw a diagonal line through the block. Next you color it with two high contrast colors. I actually saw a quilt made with this block by the daughter of the LQS owner many years ago. I have forgotten how she arranged her blocks on the quilt but it did leave an impression.

Happy Stitching and EQing!!

Every night that I worked on the binding I had company from my cat. She would sit on the quilt that was in my lap and she made it hard for me to lift and move the quilt as I sewed.

9 X 9.
See what I mean. You are going to have to play with your colors so it is pleasing to your eye. Also when I play in EQ7 I only use two or three colors, just so I am not wasting time coloring blocks and quilts. I play more with color when I have a special quilt in mind.
