June EQ Doodles

The EQ Doodles have been posted from the Overseas Office and Chris has been coaxed in from the garden at C&B Towers to make a colouring page for you. (it helps that it is raining this morning – Chris) The Summer Winds block seemed very appropriate for this time of year and it has been paired with the simple nine-patch Hour Glass block.

Download your colouring sheet here. Remember you can print it out as often as you like, cut it up, play around with it . . .

Have a look at the Doodles page to see what we came up with.

 

May EQ Doodles

So how did May creep up so quickly when some of us hadn’t even realised it was April??! All of which means that the May EQ Doodles are there ready to look at and the colouring page has been done as well. You can download it here. But, having not noticed April coming (and going again), there was no Doodle colouring page to download last month – so here it is at last. Just too much excitement in the gardens of C&B Towers, I fear:  new flower beds and paths to create, seedlings to prick out, plants to pot on, shrubs to prune, summer bulbs to plant  . . . .

Here’s a reminder of last month’s Doodle –

Don’t forget you can photocopy the colouring pages and cut them up to create your own new designs.

And for colour inspiration –

March EQ Doodles

March already – Spring is on the way and so are new Doodles. Have a look at the Doodles page to see what we have come up with this month and download your own version to colour here.

Somehow, although the February Doodles Quilt to Colour page was done and ready, we managed not to put it in a blog post all month. (Our Doodle Director has been taken to task!)  So, with many apologies, you can download the February Doodle here.

The joy of these colouring pages is that not only can you print out as many as you want to colour but you can also cut them up and re-arrange the blocks to see what new patterns you can come up with. Perhaps you could try combining blocks from February with the March block? Here’s just one suggestion –

mixed-doodleIf you are need of a project or some more ideas why not hop over to the Meadowside Designs blog and download some of the free block patterns from there. You will find links to all the blocks on the Tutorials page; and a Block of the Month is also running.

New Doodles

If it’s the start of a month it must be time to update our EQ Doodles page – and we have!  Click on the tab above to find out what’s on offer this month.

We have featured our favourite quilt program Electric Quilt via a set of monthly Doodles for several years now (probably too many to count! – Chris) and from time to time we have a trawl through the files and say “Oh I really like that one”  “Must make that one” “That could be a pattern” and, well you get the idea.  Our latest brainwave (under the influence of caffeine) is to maybe post some former doodles, maybe some class pics, maybe “other stuff” in the form of a Flashback Friday post.   We may even begin doing that this month!!  Stay tuned……

New Year etc

All set for another busy year – C&B Towers is the usual hive of activity and the Rural Office is temporarily closed in favour of our Overseas Office where skies are blue. Chris has a full schedule of classes at The Corner Patch, samples are done, worksheets written and everything ready to go.  Barbara is almost ready for a slightly less busy time (too much time at the Overseas Office! – Chris), some samples are done, some worksheets written and everything will be ready to go in time for the first 3D class also at The Corner Patch. We are teaching 4 different 3D patchwork patterns – stitching by hand with Barbara  stitching by machine with Chris, separate half day sessions on the same day.  We’re really looking forward to it!

Our EQ Doodle page has also been updated so do click over and take a look – we particularly like Doodle Six this time around. If you would like to play around with this month’s doodle you can download the colouring sheet here. Don’t forget that you can print it out as many times as you like and then cut it up and rearrange the blocks to suit yourself.

Tis the season

Over at the Rural Office the entire IT Department seems to have been missing, presumed lost to Christmas organisation and shopping and seasonal colds.  At C&B Towers several echoes of “Bah, humbug” have been heard along the corridor leading to the Executive Suite….

Our EQ doodle offering for December is finally posted – click on the tab to see what we’ve come up with!

We are looking forward to 2017 with lots of plans, caffeine and classes at The Corner Patch.  We do hope your seasonal preparations and festivities go to plan and that you maybe sneak in a little stitching time.

A couple of previous Christmassy doodles and a C&B student production to finish the year  –  Merry Christmas to you!!December 2015 6IMG_0568spq December 13
